TTFI recommends Manika Batra for Arjuna Award
Batra, who became the only quadruple medallist at the Commonwealth Games has been recommended for the Arjuna Award by The Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI).
"We sent her nomination today. With such a strong performance in Gold Coast, it will be very difficult for the (government) committee to ignore her," a TTFI official told PTI.
Batra created history in Gold Coast, single-handedly taking India to a maiden team gold before winning a singles gold, another first.
The 22-year-old beat world number four and triple Olympic medallist, Feng Tianwei of Singapore, twice in the tournament.
She also secured a women's doubles silver alongside Mouma Das and mixed doubles bronze with G Sathiyan.
Her next assignment is the World Team Championships in Sweden from April 29.
