Blind swimmer Kanchanmala to represent India at World Para Championship in Mexico
December 4, 2017
Kanchanmala Pande, the blind swimming champion from Nagpur, will represent India at the World Para Swimming Championship currently being held in Mexico.
26-year-old Kanchanmala will compete in the S-11 category and has been selected based on her excellent performance at the IDM Berlin Para Swimming Championship held in July. She will swim in the 100 metres freestyle, 100m backstroke, 100m breaststroke and 200m individual medley.
Kanchanmala is the only national swimmer who has qualified in the women's category. At the 17th National Para Swimming Championship at Udaipur, she did well in the 100m breaststroke and 200m IM and won three gold medals for Maharashtra including 100m backstroke.
Kanchanmala, who is from Amravati, represented Maharashtra several times at the national-level both in able as well as disabled category.
