Tokyo Paralympics: India's Bhavina Patel Makes History as She Reaches Final of Table Tennis Event
"It is the first time that an Indian player had beaten a Chinese opponent (in table tennis). It's a huge, huge achievement for me. Everyone used to tell me that beating a Chinese player is impossible. But today I have proved that nothing is impossible in the world. Everything is possible if you want to do it", Patel said after winning her semifinal match.

Congratulations!!! If she gets a gold, she will become the first ever indian female gold medalist. Indian female gold medalist has not yet appeared in both olympic and paralympic games. So if she succeeds in the final, that would be great achievement!! ✨— Kazumind (@Kazumind2) August 28, 2021
