Academic and sporting excellence are achievable together, says Suhas Yathiraj

New Delhi, Sep 17 (UNI) Tokyo Paralympics silver-medalist and District Magistrate of Noida, Suhas Yathiraj lives by the philosophy of 'sports help you conquer your own self' and believes that academic and sporting excellence are achievable together.
That journey has now taken him to the Paralympics where he was just beaten in the final of the SL4 category men’s singles by Lucas Mazur of France.
The 38-year old Yathiraj clinched a silver medal in the SL4 category of men’s singles badminton event at the Tokyo Paralympics. His achievement helped break a common stereotype in India that does not equate sporting excellence with academics.
