The 4th Asian Para Games in Hangzhou, China, witnessed an outstanding display of sporting prowess by Indian athletes.
Pranav Soorma led the charge by securing a gold medal and breaking the Asian Para Games record in the Men's Club Throw-F51 Final.
Soorma's remarkable performance resulted in a new record, with a throw of 30.01 metre on his second attempt.
The excellence of Indian athletes extended to the Men's High Jump-T63 event, where Shailesh Kumar secured the gold medal, and Mariyappan Thangavelu earned the silver medal.
Shailesh outperformed Mariyappan, achieving a jump of 1.82 metre, while Mariyappan settled for silver with a season-best attempt of 1.80 metre.
Adding to India's impressive medal haul, Prachi Yadav clinched a silver medal in women's VL2 Final canoeing.
