Diksha is now the only golfer with two Deaflympics medals – a silver in Samsun, Turkey in 2017 and gold in 2022, which is actually the 2021 edition of Deaflympics.

 

 

The 21-year-old left-hander, who is a professional with victories on the Ladies European Tour, completed a dominant performance with a 5 and 4 win in the final of the match play section of the ladies golf competition. She beat Grace Johnson with four holes to spare In 2017, when golf was first introduced at the Deaflympics, Diksha, then still an amateur and still short of her 17th birthday, reached the final comfortably.

Diksha has been using a hearing aid since she was six. She picked up the game after being introduced to the sport by her father Col Narinder Dagar.

 

 

In an earlier interview with 4moles.com her father Col Narinder Dagar had spoken about how Diksha loves the game from a very young age. He had said,  “It's true that Diksha is closer to me, but she has been inspired by a lot of other sources. I cannot take the credit alone.”  "I always tell her only one thing- Live your dream and enjoy every match to the fullest," added he.
