Everyone knows about Rio Olympics, which is the world’s biggest sports event, where PV Sindhu and Sakhi Malik won the Silver and Bronze medals in this Olympics. The players were highly honored by the Indian Government for their success, and also received huge prize money and other benefits in their states.
But one more event took place at the Olympics, which was not even telecasted in any TV Channel and it was not even known to much people in India and even the government has also not responded to this event.
Paralympics Games, it’s the international multi-sports event, where the athletes who are disabled will participate. In this sports, Mariyappan Thangavelu won a gold medal, where his leg was crushed by the bus at the age of 5. He won the gold medal now.
Mariyappan Thangavelu should be recognized and honored as the Government has honored the P V Sindhu and others.
Recently the Baahubali actor Prabhas has tweeted,
