16 year old Lakshya Sen won the Bulgaria Open International Series event today, his second senior international title. He beat the 29 year old second seeded Zvonimir Durkinjak of Croatia 18-21 21-12 21-17 in the finals. He had earlier defeated top seed Sam Parsons of England in the first round. KDS has been supporting Lakshya since he was 10 years old.
KDS funded Lakshya’s entire trip to the Bulgaria Open and a 10 day training camp in France under Danish legend Peter Gade Christensen. We also sent KDS personal trainer Mobya Duyu with him for this trip. Lakshya hails from Almora district in Uttarakhand and trains at the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy in Bangalore. He is the current World Junior no.1 and his entire training is personally looked after by badminton legend and co-founder of KDS Prakash Padukone.
We are proud to support Lakshya Sen.
