Para shuttler Suhas Yathiraj scripted history on Sunday as he became the first India Administrative Service (IAS) officer to claim a medal at the Paralympics.
What makes the achievement even more special is the way Suhas Yathiraj allocated time for both his administrative duties and badminton in Noida.
IAS officer Suhas Yathiraj, with a leg impairment, will face top seed Lucas Mazur of France in the final on Sunday.
Suhas got off to a brilliant start as he took an early lead in the first Game and kept piling pressure on Setiawan.
