Coimbatore: With sheer dedication and determination, 18-year-old BYJU’S student Rishab Sridhar, from Coimbatore has brought laurels to his school and state by participating in the ‘58th National Roller-Skating Championships Speed Skating’ held at Mohali. Organized by the Roller-skating Federation of India, an official body recognized by the Indian Government, he represented Tamil Nadu in the age group 14-17 Junior Boys and won the first and third positions in ‘rink’ and ‘point to point’ under Speed Inline skating category.

A class 12 student of PSBB Millennium School, Coimbatore, Rishab has not only been making his way up the ladder of the Indian skating scene but is also spreading his wings globally. He recently represented India in the ‘Junior Men’ category in the ‘2021 World Championships of Inline Speed Skating competition, an event organized by World Skate, the only governing body in the world for all sports performed on skating wheels. 

His skill of balancing the wheels extends to his academics as well. Being a student of science, Rishab has balanced his academics and skating impressively. His parents too wanted to ensure that his academics were not neglected. They found a solution in BYJU’S, which helped Rishab to learn at his pace and stay at par with fellow students in his class.

Speaking of how he managed academics with his love for skating, Rishab Sridhar said, “I have been studying with BYJU’S for the past 3 years, and from initial sessions, I knew it’s the right place for me. Its interesting style of teaching through animated videos, personalized attention, and always available mentor guidance helped me in grasping concepts with ease. I have always had an inclination toward Science as a subject, and BYJU’S concepts of science became as enjoyable as skating for me. Often I’d apply my learnings in my skating sessions, and it would help me understand the sport well. I am glad to have enrolled with BYJU’S, it has made me more confident in balancing my studies without having to compromise my passion for skating.”

Vinay MR, Chief Content Officer, BYJU’S, said “We are happy to see students and their parents appreciating what BYJU’S brings to the table. Our endeavor has always been to make learning fun and enjoyable for kids so that they can grow in academics and extracurriculars together.

Rishab’s victory is testimony to how BYJU’S has helped students balance their passion along with their studies. We feel proud of Rishab and congratulate him and wish him the best for his future endeavors.”
