Meet Rahul Ramugade, a gold medal winning Paralympics swimmer
May 16, 2017
28-year-old Rahul Ramugade from Maharashtra has won several gold medals in the Paralympics and other swimming championships.
He lost the function of his legs due to a reaction to a polio vaccination when he was two years old.
Rahul has no sensation in his legs but that has not stopped him from pursuing his ambition of becoming a star swimmer. He has also completed his studies in a normal school from fifth standard onwards.
Recently, he won three gold medals at the 11th State Paralympic Aquatic Championship in April.
Rahul says that dreams have no limits and he is a shining example of this.
