Krishna Nagar makes Jaipur proud, clinches gold in Tokyo Paralympics

Rajasthan wins its fourth medal in the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Para-athlete Krishna Nagar won a gold medal in badminton at the ongoing Tokyo Paralympics 2020 in the men's single SH6 category on Sunday, September 5. This is India's second para-badminton gold and the fifth gold in the Paralympic Games which takes the country's medal tally to an unprecedented 19. With an undefeated score of 21-17, 16-21, 21-17, he surpassed Hong Kong's Chu Man Kai and became the first paralympian to ace a gold in the SH6 category.

First shuttler to ace a gold in the SH6 category!

Born in Jaipur in 1999, Krishna was diagnosed with dwarfism at the age of 1 and a half years. He had a severe case of hormonal dysfunction in the pituitary gland which could've been treated with a surgery but his parents decided against it considering the risks involved.

Krishna during his school days decided to indulge in sports. In 2014, he was introduced to the sport that changed his life- para-badminton and then there was no looking back for him!

Currently training under Gaurav Khanna who is the Head National Coach of the para badminton team from Lucknow and also the winner of the Dronacharya award in 2020, Krishna is amongst the few shuttlers to make a name for himself in India.

The goal-diggers of Rajasthan!

While para-shooter, Avani Lekhara went on become the face of the 'Beti Badhao Beti Padhao' campaign of Rajasthan, Javelin Throwers, Devendra Jhajharia and Sundar Singh Gurjar have also been felicitated by the government of the state for making a mark in the Paralympic games, this year.
