Bengaluru para-swimmer Niranjan Mukundan has won eight medals, including three golds, at the recently-concluded IWAS (International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports) U-23 World Games in Prague, Czech Republic. He has won the gold medals in the 200m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 50m breaststroke, silver in the 100m fly and 50m freestyle, as also bronze in 100m freestyle, 100m breaststroke, and 100m backstroke events, stated by a release from GoSports Foundation, which is supporting Niranjan through the Para Champions Programme.
Niranjan, who is born with a medical condition called Spina Bifida and clubbed feet and competes in the S-8 category, also had the honour of delivering the athletes’ oath on behalf of 35 competing countries. In last year’s edition of the Games, he had created a record for highest number of individual medals, raking in 10 medals in all the events that he participated in.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the para-swimmer who has won eight medals in IWAS World games?
2. Name the place where IWAS World games have held recently and also expand the term IWAS?
