SPORTS REVIEW — JULY 2018

NIRANJAN BOUNCES BACK FROM AN INJURY
TO BREAK 15-YEAR-OLD ASIAN RECORD

Niranjan with his spoils after placing 3rd in 50 mtrs butterfly at IDM Berlin.
Swimmer Niranjan Mukundan set an Asian record in the 200m backstroke event at the IDM Berlin Para-Swimming World Series 2018. He clocked 3:16.01 seconds, eclipsing Van Chung’s existing mark of 4:02.49 seconds. Van Chung, a Vietnamese swimmer, had set the record back in 2003 in the S7 category.

Niranjan not only broke a record, he also won a bronze medal in the 50 meters Butterfly. His performances have been honed under the watchful eye of his childhood coach John Christopher, and have benefited from a long-term training stint at the Thanyapura Swimming Centre in Thailand, where he now trains.
Niranjan has undergone as many as 16 surgeries since birth due to his congenital condition, spina bifida. His lower limbs have developed diminished sensation over the years, due to which he has suffered from recurring ulcers on his ankle, caused by friction against surfaces he cannot feel. His support from the foundation is utilised, among other things, to consult dermatologist Dr. Vinayak, who has been managing and treating his injury. Watching Niranjan repeatedly put his injury woes behind him is a true lesson in fortitude with his record-breaking performance in Germany also coming while he was still injured! His medical team assisted him in dressing his wound such that he would not be inhibited by the injury. Needless to say, the champion made best use of the opportunity to go out and make a mark!
The foundation has also assisted him in successfully completing his reclassification and obtaining his new disability category, which pits him against a similar level of competition. He is currently training to qualify for and compete at the Para Asian Games, to be held in Indonesia in October 2018, under the watchful eyes and constant guidance of his entire medical team. GoSports Foundation is delighted to be supporting Niranjan in his goal to achieve sports excellence.

Minister as Himavan in ‘LuvKush Ramleela’ this Year!

Vijay Sampla-Union Minister of State is all set to play Himavan in ‘LuvKush Ramleela’ this Year!
    As per the information revealed in Press Conference by the chairman of LuvKush Ramleela Ashok Aggarwal, it seems like, this Year the Ramleela play will take place in a bigger manner in comparison with last few years. Yes, apart from the Bollywood stars, this year again, Union Minister of State Vijay Sampla, is all set to be the part of the Ramleela as he will be playing the character of Parvati’s father Himavan.
   In the recent Press Conference held in Delhi along with Ashok Aggarwal, Vijay Sampla was also there to grace the moment with his presence. As the time is approaching, the entire team of LuvKush Ramleela is gearing up enthusiastically for the biggest blast of the year.
   For the same Shri Sampla stated, “I had work in many places as a plumber and what I am today is all because of the blessings of lord Ram. Last year I played the role of a unique king in LuvKush Ramleela and got a huge appreciation from members of mantrimandal my close ones and this is the same reason I want to serve Shree Ram so when I got the opportunity to play Himavan’s role, I worked on it with full dedication”.
   Further he added, “I don’t come in Ramleela for my political benefits so I don’t talk anything related to this in the program. This is the second time I am seeing myself in the form of an actor rather than a politician. Again, Ramleela committee gave me an opportunity to play prominent role which feels like Lord Shree Ram himself want me to serve him. Corruption, impurity and superstitions are the biggest Ravan of my life”.
   Ashok aggarwal (chairman of Ramleela committee) added, “it is because of lord Ram’s magic that ministers, cricketers and people of different fields plays role in ram leela and some senior ministers in BJP are in contact with bollywood’s prominent and biggest actors and soon they will be seen to play different characters too.
Well, the 40-year-old LuvKush Ramleela will be showcased from 10th October till 21st October 2018.
