Sport specific information

Why this sport?
He and a friend were inspired to take up the sport by Indian Para athlete Amit Saroha. "We had a spinal injury at almost the same time that Saroha did and we came across each other during our stay at the Indian Spinal Injuries Centre. At Saroha's insistence we took up Para sports, but initially it didn't fascinate us and after competing in one competition, we stopped pursuing it. But Saroha continued with it and inspired us to take up sports again. Now sports have become an integral part of our lives."
