Shalini Ajith Kumar was seeded second, both in the
doubles and mixed doubles at the rating tournament held in Trichy.
She bagged the runners up position in not just the Women's doubles
but also in the mixed doubles through her valiant and extraordinary
efforts with partners Priya and Prakash.
Her motivation led her to a new high last Sunday (19.08.12).
Now, the top ranked players will clash in the State Level Badminton
championships to be held in Nagercoil later this month and it has
started attracting wide attention after Shalini, who was ranked in
the top, confirmed her participation. The former actress believes
that this is a huge achievement for her.
Shalini says that she has been working hard since two years and
gives credit for her success to her hubby Ajith Kumar who set up a
badminton court in their home so that she could practice the game
at home. In fact, he motivated her to pursue her passion and asked
her to participate in mainstream badminton tournaments.
