Meet Girisha Hosanagara- The Indian Paralympics Silver medalist!!

This is a story of guts, courage, determination and glory!! Meet our country’s first ever Paralympics Silver medalist- Girisha Hosanagara Nagarajegowda. All of 25 years, he has been participating in sports ever since his school days. Unfazed by little support for a sport like high jump, he went on to compete in the World Paralympics, September  2012 held in London. He made our country proud by  winning the first ever silver medal at the event! With an audience of 80,000 people watching him live on the ground, he jumped a height of 1.74 mts. The bar for excellence just got raised!!

Girisha humbly says “There is struggle in every kind of sport, in every field of life. But, it is our determination that helps us stay focused. My father told me not to worry about winning the medal. He encouraged me to make myself good enough to just participate!”

We are very happy and proud to have Girisha with us at this Open House. Its an honor and inspiration!
