A journey from the wheelchair to the winner’s podium
Kshitij Goel of 9A won the individual event of CBSE North Zone 01, Swimming Championship in the under 17 boys category.
4 Golds in 800 Mtrs Freestyle, 400 Mtrs Freestyle, 200 Mtrs Freestyle, and 200 Mtrs Butterfly. 1 Silver in 100 Mtrs Butterfly.
This win is memorable because, despite an LCL strain and meniscus tear in the left knee, Kshitij swam with his hands only, wearing a knee brace, and still secured so many medals.
More than the medals, his participation displayed true sportsmanship.
We congratulate him and wish him many more laurels in the future.
