Arunima Sinha sets sights on scaling another peak
May 9, 2017
Arunima Sinha, the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest, plans to scale another peak in December.
A national level volleyball player Sinha has to have one of her legs amputated in 2011 after she was pushed from a running train by robbers. She was bravely trying to fight them off.
She wants to climb six peaks in six continents although she says she still feels pain in her body at times. She had to have a plate and a rod inserted.
She is a Padmashri winner, and has scaled five peaks, including Mt Everest. She was featured as one of the 'People of the Year' in the 2016 Limca Book of Records.
