Para-cyclist Aditya Mehta starts talent search in Bengaluru
June 28, 2017
Para-cyclist Aditya Mehta has started his ambitious national training camp to look for promising para-athletes.
The camp, run by the Aditya Mehta Foundation (AMF), will see around 150 upcoming para-athletes made up of brave soldiers from the central armed police forces who have sustained serious injuries in the line of duty.
The initiative has helped find promising para-athletes and also transformed the lives of disabled soldiers. The Indian para-cyclists' team, made up of athletes from the AMF camp went on to win several medals at the Asian Championships in Bahrain in February.
The success of the AMF camp has inspired more soldiers to enroll and approach Aditya. The AMF plans to train and mentor them with the help of internationally acclaimed coaches in a weeklong training in six para sporting disciplines. These are swimming, cycling, badminton (standing and wheelchair), tennis (wheelchair), shooting and bodybuilding.
