The Phenomenal Rise of Indian Paralympians

The Phenomenal Rise of Indian Paralympians

Inspirational, incredible and indomitable. This is how India’s performance at the recently concluded Paralympics Games 2020 in Tokyo can aptly be described. India won 19 medals: five golds, eight silvers and six bronzes. In all, 54 athletes came to Tokyo and 17 of them left with medals. For the first time, the attention in India turned to Paralympics sports. This was India’s finest outing at the Paralympics and eclipsed the previous best of four medals at the Rio de Janeiro edition in 2016. Incidentally, the disabled represent 2.2% of India’s population.
