Paracimber wins medal

October 12, 2016

29-year-old Manikandan Kumar has won three golds, seven silvers and a bronze for India in para-climbing.

Yet he is still waiting for official recognition as an athlete by the Indian government.

The Bengaluru-based climber is India's only para-athlete to have won 11 medals in the sport at the international level.
