Narayan placed 4th in the Men’s Singles event of the Canadian Collegiate Athletics Association Championship after “questionable” officiating in his match.
In the round-robin group stage, Narayan won 4 out of his 5 matches then went on to the medal round in the semi-finals, where he lost to Kunal Sokar 21-14, 16-21, 21-12 after a very tiring and upsetting match where several questionable calls were made which frustrated and demotivated Narayan.
Notwithstanding he went on to play for 3rd space but was not successful and lost to Yuge Zeng 21-17, 21-11.
