Krishna Nagar on 5 September secured India’s second gold medal in badminton at Tokyo after notching a thrilling three- win over Hong Kong’s Chu Man Kai in the men’s singles SH6 class here.

The 22-year-old from Jaipur, seeded second, saw off his rival 21-17 16-21 21-17 in the to retain his unbeaten run at the Games and join compatriot Pramod Bhagat in the gold medal winning list.

It was a tight contest right from the start between Nagar and Man Kai Chu. In the first game, Kai Chu headed into the mid- interval with a slender lead but Nagar came back well to win the first game 21-17.

In the second game, the Hong Kong player built a lead and it seemed like Nagar’s dropped a bit in the first half of the second game. Chu Man Kai continued with his momentum and came back strongly and eventually won the game 21-16.

In the decider, it was Krishna Nagar’s quality that became the point of difference as he won the yellow metal.

Bhagat had claimed the first gold in badminton in SL3 class on 4 September. This was India’s fifth gold at the Games.

Earlier, Suhas Lalinakere Yathiraj ended his campaign with a historic silver after going down fighting against top seed Lucas Mazur of France in the men’s singles SL4 class final.

The 38-year-old Noida district magistrate, who has an impairment in one of his ankles, produced an entertaining performance before narrowly going down 21-15 17-21 15-21 to two-time world champion Mazur in a 62-minute summit clash.

India sent its highest ever contingent of 54 para athletes across as many as 9 sporting disciplines. Badminton and Taekwondo made their debut in Tokyo, both of which were represented by India.

Since making its first appearance at the in 1968, India had won 12 medals in total till the 2016 Rio edition. It has now drastically improved upon that entire number by 7 medals at the Tokyo Paralympics 2020 alone.
