SWIM THE CHANNEL
In June 2018 he swam across the English Channel in relay with three other Para swimmers from India. "We had to swim with jellyfish and currents between big waves, but we did not give up, we kept going." They completed the crossing in 12 hours, 26 minutes. The team's achievement was recorded in the India Book of Records. (Facebook profile, 04 Apr 2019; rajsamandtimes.com, 24 Mar 2019; patrika.com, 26 Jun 2018)
