Ramdhani impresses at CAREBACO International

first_imgGuyana’s Badminton Champion Priyanna Ramdhani was all show on Saturday at the CAREBACO International competition when she silenced a Surinamese crowd by defeating their best Under-19 player and tournament favourite, Imani Mangroe, in straight sets 21-9, 21-7 in the Under-19 Girls Singles semi-finals.And in so doing, she booked her spot in the finals.Ramdhani had lost to Mangroe at last year’s CAREBACO competition in Trinidad & Tobago, but on this occasion she came on very strong with impressive game play, executing precise shots which saw the opponent scrambling on court to return.Ramdhani’s commanding game play was due to lots of intensive training at the Guyana Olympic Association’s (GOA’s) Gym under the tutelage of Theodore Henry two times a week, and her on-court development was due to the one-month training Camp she attended in Guatemala in the early part of 2018.She also trained very hard three times a week at Yonex Badminton Club, and is very dedicated to her self-improvement.In the Under-19 Girls Doubles, Ramdhani teamed up with Chequeda De Boulet of Trinidad to defeat the Surinames pair of Erisa Bleau and Chaista Soemodipoero 26-24, 21-15 in the semis; and again she booked her spot into the finals.She was scheduled to be playing for Gold in the Girls Singles and Girls Doubles titles on Sunday.last_img
