TTFI recommends CWG medalist Manika Batra’s name for Arjuna Award

Manika Batra

The Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI) has recommended Manika Batra, the country’s only quadruple medallist at the 21st Commonwealth Games, for the prestigious Arjuna Award. A TTFI official said that they sent her nomination today.

Batra created history in Gold Coast, single-handedly taking India to a maiden team gold before winning a singles gold, another first.

The 22-year-old Indian beat world number four and triple Olympic medallist, Feng Tianwei of Singapore, twice in the tournament. She also secured a women’s doubles silver alongside Mouma Das and mixed doubles bronze with G Sathiyan.

Batra’s next assignment is the World Team Championships in Sweden from April 29.
