Just to inform our viewers, Suyash Jadhav will be participating in Heat 2 alongside 5 other swimmers.
Suyash Jadhav, like we said earlier, has been terribly unlucky, missing out by whiskers on two occasions. His story is one that represents the triumph of will over other challenges, problems and adversities.
Mariyappan Thangavelu, Varun Singh Bhati and Deepa Malik have brought great glory to the country and showed that adversity, circumstances and pain are words that do not bother champions as they keep moving on.
We are around 20 minutes away from the start of the event and I must say, it has been a superb Paralympics for India till now.
