Good Sports: SWIMMING TO GOLD

Kanchanmala Pande, a visually impaired swimmer from Nagpur, recently became the first Indian to win a gold medal at the World Para Swimming Championship. She competed in four events at the world championship in Mexico and won gold in the 200 meters medley event in the S11 category. The category is for swimmers who are blind or nearly blind.

“I had prepared well for the World Championship,” the 26-year-old told Times of India. “I was expecting a good show in Mexico and also a medal. But securing the top position and a gold medal at world championship is surprising. I am really very happy.”
