Give more attention to disabled athletes, says Arunima Sinha
Mountaineer Arunima Sinha, who is physically challenged, has said that disabled athletes are not getting a proper platform to display their talent.
She also accused sports officials of not properly advertising dates of national para-athletics championship and leaking the details to a few players.
Sinha said that whenever the national para-athletic games are held, information does not reach the athletes. Sinha scaled Mt Everest in 2013, becoming the first female amputee to reach the highest peak of the world.
However, she said that she had no information when Jaipur hosted the national para-athletics championship this year. She also said that when the national junior para-athletics games were held in Faridabad in June, para sportspersons did not get any information.
