After losing 0-3 to world number one Chinese paddler Ying Zhou in the women’s singles class 4 final here on August 29, Indian table tennis star Bhavina Patel signed off with a historic silver medal in her debut Paralympic Games.

Patel, who was diagnosed with polio when she was 12 months old, had defeated world no 3 Miao Zhang of China 7-11 11-7 11-4 9-11 11-8 in the semifinal showdown on Saturday.
