#ProudAtParalympics: Deepa Malik bags Silver and creates History!
Here’s another moment to be #ProudAtParalympics as Deepa Malik wins Silver in Shot Put. Well, you might be wondering why History? That’s because Deepa Malik is the first Indian Women to win a medal at Paralympic games.
Deepa is an all rounder as she is not only good in Shot put; but also in swimming, javelin throw, discus throw and also motorsports.
Deepa’s story is heartbreaking and emotional but also motivational at the same time.
12 Years back, Deepa was diagnosed with a spinal tumor and was paralyzed from the chest down. And, since then, she has gone through three spinal tumor surgeries and 183 stitches between shoulder blades.
Despite all of these hardships in life, nothing has stopped her as she is an
Asian Record Holder in Women’s Javelin throw
She is an Arjuna Awardee as well
She also has been nominated for Limca Book of Records
Well, she is truly an inspiration!
