She said that being four months away from court was very frustrating for her and she couldn’t wait anymore as the is her passion.
“It may take around one more month before I am fully fit but I don’t want to wait anymore, I wanted to find a way to resume my training,” she said.
“So, this was the best possible way. No matter if my legs are not fully fit but my hands are fit and I can practice my shots with them and flex some muscles,” Palwasha added.
Palwasha added that the injury she suffered will always be remembered because she fought each hour and each day to overcome this hurdle.
"I am preparing my body and mind for upcoming events. Behind the tears and the pain is the will to keep going, not to give up and come back stronger," she said.
"I have faced a lot of problems these couple of months but surely Allah will reward me with the best. Verily, hard work always pays off. Soon I will be in court with the better version of myself," the badminton player aimed.
