Indian wheelchair tennis player hopes to win in 2020 Paralympics
32-year-old Prathima Rao, a wheelchair tennis player from Bengaluru, hopes to represent India and win a medal in the 2020 Summer Paralympics.
Prathima is paralysed from below the waist since she was three years old and has represented India in many international games in the past. However, she couldn’t win those games due to lack of better equipment and training.
But she plans to raise money to get a better wheelchair which will allow her to move smoothly and quickly to compete with international players in the upcoming games.
People like Prathima inspire the country's athletes to give their best despite their difficulties.
