Guyana’s Badminton Men’s Champion, Narayan Ramdhani, for the second year has won the MVP Awards for 2020 at The Kings University in Edmonton, Canada.
Narayan won that award for his stellar performances for the Season September 2019 to April 2020.
The Kings University Release stated: In the Sport of Badminton, The Singles discipline is the most coveted but also the most difficult. Simply put, a great singles player must be physically fit, mentally strong and have a mastery of the racquet and Shuttlecock. Our award recipient once again has gone above and beyond to make his teammates, coaches and the Kings University very proud. Whether it was late night fitness sessions or extra off-campus training, he took no shortcuts. He also places a great deal of pressure on himself to be the very best. His back-to-back nationals appearance is a first for the Kings Badminton and we know he strides to extend that streak. His hunger to succeed on and off court is evident during practices as he is always asking for more drills. His teammates and coaches know what he is capable of and we are excited to watch his continual growth.
