New Delhi: Disabled Indian cyclist Jagwinder Singh yesterday launched a crowd-funding campaign to gather money to participate in Paralympics events.
Jagwinder, hailing from a small village called Patra near Patiala in Punjab, does not have two arms and uses his feet to do his daily chores. Yet, he nurtures a dream of winning at the Paralympics cycling championship and has launched the crowd-funding campaign on DesiredWings.com.
On the launch of his crowd-funding campaign Jagwinder said in a release: "To be able to compete on an international level, all athletes need international standards of training, coaching, nourishment and infrastructure. Through this crowd-funding initiative I hope to collect enough money to be able to keep on dreaming and following my passion. I will leave no stone unturned to win an Olympics gold.
