Kadam had received a bronze medal in males’s singles SL4 occasion on the 2019 BWF Para-Badminton World Championships in Basel.
He was among the many 5 para shuttlers who have been included within the TOPS in March 2019. The different shuttlers have been Manoj Sarkar and Pramod Bhagat from males’s Singles SL3, Tarun and Suhas Yathiraj from males’s Singles SL4.
Athletes within the SL3 class typically have an impairment in a single or each decrease limbs, and poor strolling/operating stability. To minimise the affect of their impairment, they play solely half-courtroom (size-clever).
The impairment of athletes within the SL4 class is of a lesser diploma in contrast to SL3. They play full-courtroom since they often run quicker and have higher stability than SL3 athletes.
