New Delhi: Teenager Soumyajit Ghosh knows he is not India's best table tennis player to have qualified for the London Olympics. But now that he has, the Silguri-born paddler thinks if he can pull off an upset, it would make his Olympic debut worthwhile.
Like 18-year-old boxer Shiva Thapa, Ghosh had set his sights on the 2016 Olympics. But the 19-year-old realised his dream four years earlier after beating higher-ranked compatriot Anthony Amalraj at the Asian Olympic qualifier in Hong Kong. He became one of the two players to secure the coveted Olympic berth alongside Ankita Das.
