September 5, 2021 by archyde

Indian team talks about new history at the Tokyo Paralympics. The Indian team concluded the event in Tokyo with the best performance in the history of the Paralympics. India won 19 medals, including five gold, eight silver and six bronze.

Prior to arriving in Tokyo, India won 12 medals (4 gold, 4 silver and 4 bronze) out of a total of Paralympics. The Indian team’s best performance was at the Rio Paralympics, winning four medals, including two golds. The 54-member Indian team, which arrived in Tokyo this year with the goal of surpassing that performance, is returning with five times more medals than it did in Rio.

His own achievement in the medal hunt also earned him a place in India’s medal tally. The Indian team, which won 19 medals, finished 24th out of the top 25 in the medal table. China tops the medal tally with 207 medals, including 96 gold. Britain came in second with 124 medals and the United States came in third with 104 medals.

Bhavinaben Patel won a bronze medal in table tennis in the Class 4 category, marking India’s start to the medal haul in Tokyo. Krishna Sagar won the gold medal in the men’s SH6 6 category singles badminton, ending the medal hunt.

India overcame the disappointment of not winning a medal in shooting at the Olympics through the Paralympics. The Indian athletes won five medals, including two gold, from the shooting in Tokyo. Avani Lekhara (gold and bronze) and Singh Raj Adana (silver and bronze) won two medals each.

This was the last Paralympic Games for India to shine in athletics. The Indian para-athletic team won four medals in high jump, three in javelin throw and one in discus throw in Tokyo.

In its first year as a badminton player in the Paralympics, India turned it into an achievement. Badminton players bring home four medals, including gold from Pramod Bhagat and Krishna Nagar.

India has won seven medals in the Olympics, while India has won 19 medals in the Paralympics. The medals are eight in athletics, five in shooting, four in badminton, one in archery and one in table tennis.
