Sports are an essential part of our life since our childhood. But when choosing it as a career and livelihood it needs lots of courage and determination. People who choose to adopt sports as their career have a remarkable story behind their journey.
The Sports Carnival has the same motive to uncover those journeys and bring out the inspirational effort. One such inspirational story is of Varun Singh Bhati,
Varun Singh Bhati is a Para high jumper from India. Having afflicted by Poliomyelitis at a young age, he joined sports during school days. He had won several medals in international events including bronze at 2016 Summer Paralympic Games and 2017 World Para Athletics Championships.
He has T-42 disability. He received attention in 2012 when he registered the ‘A’ qualification mark for the 2012 Summer Paralympic Games in London with a performance of 1.60m. However owing to limited slots available to India, he failed to qualify for 2012 Games.
He participated in the 2014 Asian Para Games in Incheon, Korea where he stood 5th. He won a gold medal at the 2014 China Open Athletics Championship the same year. In 2015, he stood 5th again at the 2015 Para World Championship in Doha, Qatar. He recorded a jump of 1.82m at the 2016 IPC Athletics Asia-Oceania Championship where he won gold as well as set a new Asian Record.
