New Delhi: August 29 was a day to cherish for Indian sports as three of our para athletes did the nation proud by winning medals (two silver and one bronze) at the ongoing Tokyo Paralympics. And to top it all, on Monday, August 30, Avani Lekhara won the gold medal in women’s 10m AR Standing SH1 Final and Yogesh Kathuniya got the silver in discus throw F56.

High jumper Nishad Kumar missed the gold finishing with a silver but setting an Asian record with a jump of 2.06 metre. Earlier in the day, Bhavina Patel also bagged the silver in women’s table tennis. Discus thrower Vinod Kumar ended with a bronze.

And now, Himachal Pradesh CM Jai Ram Thakur has announced a cash prize of Rs 1 crore for Nishad hailing from the Una district of the state while his Gujarat counterpart Vijay Rupani will felicitate Bhavina (from the state) with Rs 3 crore on her feat.

Meanwhile, Vinod Kumar might have to refrain from celebrating till the time the verdict on his classification in the F52 category is out. Some of his competitors have challenged his participation and the decision of the organising committee is awaited. Nevertheless, as Indians, we salute Vinod for bringing laurels to the country.
