Narender'S STORY

Born to a farming family near Sonipat in Haryana, Narender lost his parents in an accident when he was 3 years old and was almost entirely brought up by his grandmother. The family made their livelihood through farming.

He initially used to be a runner, and competed in the 2010 Para Asian Games in the running event, until he developed chronic back problems. Due to this, Narender switched over to javelin throw and has not looked back since, having won Asian Para Games medal in 2014 and represented India across multiple Paralympic Games and World Para Athletics Championships.

Married and the sole breadwinner of his family, Narender put in a strong showing at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio finishing 6th. He returned to action in 2017 by clinching a silver medal in Javelin throw at the Para Nationals and represented India at the 2017 IPC World Para Athletics Championships in London.
