Para-archer Harvinder Singh, who won the bronze medal in the recurve category at the Tokyo Paralympics recently, was felicitated at the Northern Regional Centre (NRC) of the Sports Authority of India (SAI) in Sonepat.

Felicitating Harvinder during a programme at the NRC, Lalita Sharma, SAI Regional Director, said it was a great moment for us as the first Paralympic medal in archery came from this centre.

She said a high-performance centre for archery was being developed and the work on it would start soon. The approximate cost of the project is Rs 5 crore.

Harvinder was a part of the Para-Archery National Coaching Camp being conducted at the NRC, Sonepat, since October 2020.

Amid Covid, SAI took measures to continue the training of the para-archers in the national camp so as to ensure that their preparations for the Olympics and Paralympics were not hampered, she added.
