Narayan Ramdhani receives 3rd MVP award

Canada-based Guyanese Badminton champion Narayan Ramdhani has this week received his third consecutive Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for his university’s badminton team.
The Kings University Eagles athlete (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) has been a standout player since his arrival there, and has copped a number of coveted accolades.

Commenting on his achievement, the 22-year-old noted that the award is reflective of the hard work he has been putting in.
“Getting the MVP for the badminton team is a great accomplishment. This is the third year in a row I’m getting it, and it shows how hard I’m working,” Ramdhani told this publication.
Highlighting that this particular award was not his main focus, but rather excelling at every competition he attends, he went on to say, “The MVP wasn’t that important to me, it was getting a gold medal at provincials and getting a medal at Nationals. I think that’s the biggest goal for me when I’m here in Canada.”
According to the Guyana Badminton Association (GBA), even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Narayan has been trying to keep up with his training as a ‘badminton hopeful’ for the Tokyo Olympics.
The games are set for July 23 to August 8.
