Avani lekhara: At just 9 years old, she has endured the pain of a horrible accident. Recovering from this pain, she has become a champion today and now her story is in front as an inspiration for countless other people with disabilities as well as people with normal physical abilities.
From a fatal accident to becoming an excellent para shooter, he has endured a lot and overcame obstacles to get to the top.
Avni Lakhera, India’s first Paralympic gold medalist female shooter, wrote in her Twitter bio, “Life is not about having good cards, but about playing the cards you catch.” Avni Lekhra was born on November 8, 2001 in Jaipur, India. Happened in Rajasthan. He suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident in 2012. The accident disrupted his activities and tied him to a wheelchair. It made him powerless.
The young champion did not let his injuries dominate his own morale. He did not allow despair to erupt around him. Seeing that he was interested in sports, his father took him to the shooting range. Here Avni got excited and encouraged by his father, Avni got the opportunity to make the most of his potential instead of disability by competing in various sports from an early age.
A 12-year-old girl who was battling physical problems after the Vidisha accident had confidence in her abilities. However, his path to success was fraught with obstacles, as he had to overcome both physical and mental battles. A good search was needed to gain proficiency in the game, but para-coaches are not found. The techniques of the game are different in paralysis,
Because the requirements and challenges are also quite different than a normal player. Avni had said in response to a question about the physical challenge, “Living with a disability is a victory in itself.
Avni got inspiration from India’s golden shooter Abhinav Bindra
Inspiration from India’s golden man Abhinav Bindra has played an important role in bringing Avani to that place today. He read Abhinav Bindra’s autobiography and it was this book that inspired him to go ahead with the shooting. He wanted to do something like this for India and he has done exactly that by winning a gold medal in Tokyo.
Avani Lekhara is the first Indian woman to win a Paralympic gold medal. He achieved this feat at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. He also set a new Paralympic record and equaled the world record. This moment was a pleasant and glorious moment not only for Avni but for all the people of India. Avni’s story is going to inspire millions of Indians who get upset even in the face of small physical challenges and stray from the goal.
It is a great achievement to join the game after suffering the pain of a horrible accident at a young age, to move forward with full concentration and to emerge as the most brilliant player in the world. Avni’s achievement has been recorded in the sports history of India. They will be remembered for centuries to come.
Like Avni, the story of other Paralympic medalists is also very interesting and inspiring. With the silver medal on August 29, 2021, Bhavna Patel became the first table tennis player to win a medal for India in the Paralympics. PCI chief Deepa Malik was the first Indian woman to win a medal in the Paralympics. Deepa had won a silver medal in the women’s shot put at Rio 2016.
