Meet Kritika Khanna, India’s first para-rower
April 3, 2018
Kritika Khanna is 33 years old and training to be India's first professional para-rower.
She is being trained by Lieutenant Colonel Gaurav Dutta, India's only para-triathlete.
Kritika Khanna lost her leg in a life-threatening accident in 2003. Her leg was amputated and her plans to become a dancer were affected.
For a few years Kritika struggled to come to terms with her disability.
She always loved dancing and started taking up classes again.
After Lieutenant Dutta contacted Kritika and asked her to take up rowing professionally, she left her hometown in Jammu. She relocated to Pune to train and has been working hard since then.
Currently she is aiming to qualify for the Asian and World Rowing Championships to be held in 2019.
She hopes to win a medal for India and is confident of doing so.
