Krishna Nagar is an Indian para-badminton player known to win a gold medal at the 2020 Summer Paralympics. He is currently ranked second in the world rankings in the Para-Badminton Men’s Singles SH6 category after winning at Tokyo Paralympics 2020. Krishna Nagar was born into a poor family in Jaipur, Rajasthan. His parents noticed that he was shorter than other children of his age. After consulting a doctor, They discovered he had delayed growth due to a hormone deficiency.

His classmates bullied Krishna Nagar in school, which motivated him to do something different in his life. Despite being anxious about his height since childhood, he continued experimenting with different methods, such as hanging and playing, to develop his interest in sports. His interest in sports grew over time.

Difficulties he faced in childhood

During an interview, Krishna Nagar discussed his difficulties and stated, “People used to make fun of me when I was in school”. Some people said I would never be able to achieve anything in life. Which also affected me, and I tried various exercises and sports to increase my height, but nothing worked.”

Sports Selection

Krishna Nagar discovered his natural talent in sports and excelled in sprinting, jumping, and other games. In 2017, he began playing para-badminton during his college years. Speaking about it, he said

“In 2017, after reaching college, I joined a stadium in Jaipur to play badminton for fun, where I was introduced to para-badminton. The coach there explained how it works and how there is a para-badminton category for people like me. Since then, I have never looked back and continued playing badminton regularly.”

2018 Krishna Nagar started participating in professional badminton competitions and won a bronze medal at the 2018 Asian Para Games. He also won silver and bronze medals at the BWF Para-Badminton World Championship in Basel, Switzerland. Krishna participated in the International Para-Badminton event in Dubai in April 2020 and won two gold medals.

Krishna expressed his joy after winning a gold medal at the 2020 Summer Paralympics by saying,

“This is like a dream come true”. I want to thank my parents, uncles, aunts, God, and coaches. This is the first time badminton has been included in the Paralympics, and I hope India continues to win and perform well in future competitions.

His Father gives details.

Krishna’s Father was not present to watch the match, which was being broadcast live in the stadium. During a press conference following Krishna’s victory, his Father said,

“After several tests, doctors informed us that there was a hormone deficiency in the pituitary gland and the surgery has a very low success rate, so we decided against it. We were concerned and wanted to divert his attention away from his height. Krishna could also play volleyball and high jump, but tall people were given priority, so we chose badminton instead.”
