Congratulations to Two Time Open Disability Championship winner Raja Iyer
A person with a physical disability loses all hopes in life as it proves very disadvantageous for him. But with sheer grit, determination, dedication, perseverance and hard work a person can convert his disability into ability. An Indian hero named Venkateswaran proved that disability is just a state of mind. He is a born star who did not let his disability hold him back in any way. He made the country feel proud after winning back to back two World Disability Snooker open held at Gloucester in 2015 & 2016 organized by World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) under the aegis of World Professional Billiards & Snooker Association (WPBSA).
Venkateswaran Subramanian had decided to excel in sports by turning his disability into ability and participated in the second World Disability Snooker championship from 14th to 16th October 2016 at the same venue organized by WDBS. The tournament included players with physical disabilities who were either ambulant or wheelchair players.
World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) has announced the 2018 Belgian Open, the first WDBS competition to be held outside of the UK.
The landmark event was staged at The Trickshot, a fully accessible venue home to 11 full-size snooker tables and located close to the center of the historic city of Bruges, from 23-25 March 2018. The main two-day tournament was open to players with physical disabilities including ambulant and wheelchair users (WDBS Classification Groups 1-5).
It has been fantastic to catch up with the two-time Open Disability Championship winner Raja Iyer this weekend in Bruges. The Indian player is competing in his first World Disability Billiards and Snooker event since 2016 and was in action against Daniel Blunn in the Groups 3-5 final.
I GIVE STANDING OVATION TO THIS SUPER-HUMAN. REALLY, HE IS A TRUE INSPIRATION TO THE YOUTH. GO RAJA GO
