Paddlers Manav Thakkar, Archana Kamath and Moumita Datta emerged champions in their respective categories in the 78th junior and youth national championships.
Manav beat Delhi’s Parth Virmani 4-0 to win the youth boys singles title while Archana and Moumita won the junior girls singles title and youth girls trophy respectively. Parth was no match for a rampaging Manav, who unleashed attacking strokes, varying his services cleverly to push Parth on the back foot and win 11-8, 11-9, 11-7, 11-3.
In the youth boys final, it was a tough ask for Manav when he had to return to the table after the junior boys final. Facing PSPB teammate, Abhishek Yadav, who showed his true form in the semi-final against Birdie Boro, also of PSPB, Manav made his intent loud and clear. In the junior girls singles final, Archana did not waste any time to outsmart an in-form Moumita of West Bengal to claim her maiden crown by winning 4-0. It must have been disappointing for Moumita, who reached three finals here, to bow out in the fashion she did against Archana.
Except for the second game which Archana won with a difference of three points.  However, the West Bengal girl ensured she returned home with at least the youth girls trophy in her kitty when she beat Tamil Nadu’s Harshavardhini Ravichandran 4-0.
