Super para-cyclist is crowd-funding his 2016 Paralympic dream
March 26, 2016
23-year old Jagwinder Singh was born without hands. Today, he is one of India's top para-cyclists. Singh qualified for the 2014 Asian Para Games but could not go because he had no money. He now plans to participate in the 2016 Paralympics through a crowd-funding initiative on DesiredWings.com, an online platform that brings together people who want to make a difference and cause-driven projects.
Jagwinder's goal is to win the gold medal and make his parents and country proud,' he says. Singh suffered more than 17 fractures to achieve his current skills. He completed a 212-kms cyclothon in Patiala in 9 hours and 15 minutes and won the state gold medal in paracycling organised by the Chandigarh Association in 2014. He also won a bronze medal in the International Cyclothon in Orissa in 2015.
He uses his feet to cook and eat his food, paint and even work on his computer. Singh said that he always watches how other people do their activities and creates his own method for the same thing. His fans adoringly call him Super Singh.
