Tokyo Paralympics: Manish Narwal once wanted to be a footballer, now won Gold Medal for country in shooting

New Delhi: Indian athletes continue to perform well in the Tokyo Paralympics. Indian parachuters played brilliantly in the shoot on Saturday. Manish Narwal won the gold medal in the P4 Mixed 50m Pistol SH-1. He finished first in the final with a score of 218.2. More importantly, Indian athlete Singhraj also finished second in the event and won the silver medal.

Manish Narwal wanted to be a footballer. But disability stood a challenge for him, but these challenges did not undermine Manish's intention to become an athlete.  Manish decided to proceed to the shoot in 2016 on the advice of his father and colleagues. Narwal started shooting practice in Faridabad in Haryana. After that, he never looked back. Narwal has won many national and international competitions.

Manish Narwal was awarded the Arjuna Award in 2020. He is a resident of Sonepat. However, he moved to Faridabad many years ago by his father Dilbagh Singh. Manish won a gold and a bronze medal in the 10m and 50m events at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta. Manish also played brilliantly at the 2019 World Championships in Sydney. He won bronze medals in three of the events he participated in. Narwal scored 229.1 points in the 2021 Paralympic World Cup, breaking the world record in 10 meters.
