My dream is to win a medal for India at the Olympics...

Abu Hubaida, hails from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh is an Indian professional Para-Badminton player who made his International debut in 2016.

At the age of just two, the polio has resulted in a broken leg and this disease had made Abu poor. The financial condition of the house was not good at that time, his father was definitely a soldier in PAC, but the salary was very less and due to the large family, the expenses could not be met. His father's salary was not enough that he could train for badminton in a good place. It's about the year 2016.

He had to go to China to participate in a championship. But, he did not have enough money to participate in this championship. However, his coach Gaurav Khanna was of great help. He can never forget that time. Abu has struggled a lot since the beginning. Despite such an adverse situation, his mother not only handled it, but also gave inspiration to move forward. Abu too faced the situation boldly.
