Led by the likes of newly crowned World No. 1 Manasi Joshi and Tokyo gold medallist Pramod Bhagat, also the reigning World No. 1, the Indian contingent delivered a power-packed performance in only the second tournament of this BWF season.
Winning 6 gold medals, 7 silver medals and 8 bronze medals, the Indian para-badminton contingent really impressed at the Cartagena event.
Only recently, this very team bagged 34 medals from the Spanish Para-Badminton International (Level II) tournament which saw them loot 11 golds, 7 silvers and 16 bronze medals.

On the other hand, the silver medallists included Pramod Bhagat (Men's Singles SL3), Mandeep Kaur (Women's Singles SL3), Tarun Dhillon (Men's Singles SL4), Krishna Nagar (Men's Singles SH6), Ruthick/Manasi (Mixed Doubles SL3-SU5), Hardik/Ruthik (Men's Doubles SU5) and Pramod/Manoj (Men's Doubles SL3-SL4) to make up for the seven silvers.
