Imran Wadia, NAIT, Badminton

Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for January 30 - February 5, 2017

When Imran joined the NAIT Ooks badminton team this season, no one knew what impact he would eventually have on the program. Imran completed his final regular season tournament of the season this past weekend at Concordia by continuing to dominate competition. He won both the men’s singles and doubles events. He remained unbeaten on the season in men’s singles defeating teammate Nick Roque in the final 21-18, 21-14.  He then teamed up with rookie Tyler Walsh and won the doubles event defeating the NAIT team of Jeff Ko and Jason Rausch 22-20, 21-16 in the final. “As a 1st year Ook, Imran has integrated well into our team dynamic,” said NAIT Head Coach Sinead Cheah. “He is a great role model for future badminton players at NAIT”.  

Imran is a 2nd year Wireless Systems Engineering student from Calgary, AB.

Congratulations Imran!
