Kathmandu, January 13
This is the highest any Nepali shuttler has reached in his career. Dahal, over the past few months, has been impressing people with his results in the badminton court.
This, Dahal says, is a dream come true. “This will motivate me when I make the jump to the senior level where I hope to make everyone proud,” says Dahal.
The World Badminton Federation publishes the rankings of junior and senior players from around the world every week. Dahal is currently studying in class 11 at Pinnacle Academy in Lagankhel, Lalitpur.
Similarly, according to the rankings for women’s juniors released by the World Badminton Federation, Nepal’s Rasila Maharjan has been ranked 19th.
