Rajat Choudhary: Journey of A Farmer Son from a local star to a National Volleyball Icon in India

Rajat Choudhary is not just a name in the sports world in India, but has gone beyond the nation when he represented his nation in Thailand at the known Asian School Volleyball Championship in 2014. It was a dream come true experience for any sportsman to reach at this level and that too at a tender age of 18. Let’s hear from the man himself sharing his inputs on the achievement he has got in his life. Some of the key excerpts from his interview have been shared below: 

Q: Your Journey from being a small town boy from a family of farmers to a national icon? 

Ans: The journey was simple and modest and we had limited sports to play and I was inclined towards volleyball. When I was 11 I started playing the sports and in just a few years I was lucky enough to get to represent the under 14 volleyball tournament and soon in a few months, I was good to go representing my country in Thailand followed by participating in different national level tournaments for volleyball. 

Q: How was your experience in Thailand representing India in the Asian School Volleyball Championship?

Ans: It was an amazing experience representing the country in Thailand. The feeling is incredible and is hard to express to her and I still remember the day when my name was announced in the team informing me that we will be heading for the tournament. It was a fantastic experience visiting Thailand and a great learning experience for me. With decent performance, it was a fabulous stay in Thailand that gave me the chance to interact with players of different Asian nations. I could learn many more things thus gaining a good exposure in the game. 

Q: Your future plans 

I have played at the national level and it is my honor to be in the senior level volleyball team. I got the chance to play all the major tournaments including the Federation cup gaining different medals as well. I would continue my pace of becoming a professional and competent player and aspire to be the part of all the tournaments coming ahead this year.
