Gobi Ranganathan- Latest Dream Catcher
Roebuck Academy was proud to host their latest Dream Catcher assembly, Gobi Ranganathan. Gobi inspired the children when he talked about his numerous achievements in the world of Para sports, and in particular badminton, where he has had a huge amount of success over the years, including winning British, European and World medals in his sport. But it hasn't always been plain sailing for Gobi as he talked about his hard journey to achieve his success including having to overcome illness, injury and over 30 operations during his prestigious career. Not only that but he mentioned how he has had to be stubborn in his approach to training and in the way he has had to show determination to continue trying to improve in his sport, especially with limited funding. One highlight of his career was being a torch bearer at the 2012 London Olympics and he mentioned that he still harbours ambitions to compete at the next Olympics in Tokyo. Gobi 's nugget of wisdom to the children was to, "be the best you can be, and if you try the hardest at whatever you want to do doors will open up for you."
