It is a well known fact that our people dont care about any sport other than cricket, but here’s a news which we need to care and be proud about.
India performed exceptionally well in the 2015 Special Olympic world summer games held in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A, bagging 173 medals. This is the worlds largest sports event for Para Athletes accommodating 6500 athletes from 177 countries out of which 275 are from India playing 14 different sports.
Our heroes returned to our nation with 47 gold, 54 silver and 72 bronze medals. India secured 47 medals in athletics and 39 medals in roller skating making it the largest number of medals won by a country in these two disciplines making us the 3rd best performing country beside USA & China.
Here is the list of medals won by our athletes.
Feel free to congratulate our heroes in the comment section below.
