Winning a medal at the Tokyo Paralympic Games was a dream come true for Bhavinaben Patel. Now, the paddler wants to realize another dream: meet her childhood idol Sachin Tendulkar and show the iconic cricketer her silver medal.

 

"Bhavina wants to meet Tendulkar and show the medal to him. He is her idol. We are trying to contact him and fix a meeting once we return to India," husband Nikul Patel said.

Bhavinaben is only the second Indian woman to win a medal the Para Olympic Games. She was beaten 7-11, 5-11, 6-11 by world No. 1 Chinese Ying Zhou in the Table Tennis Class 4 final at the Games on Sunday. Zhou won her third Paralympics gold.
