Contribution to the Field

 

Before 2016, no Indian athlete from Indian Army or Air Force or from other parts of Society had participated or taken part in International Paramotor Championships.

I am the first and only Indian Paramotor athlete who took part in Paramotor Kings Cup Open 2016 International Championship. In this Championship, I won One Silver and Two Bronze Medals and it became history. Which made me the first Indian to win International medals in Paramotoring. It is notable that the record is noted down in Limca Book of Records. It has given a new identity for India in Paramotor air Adventure Sports at International level.

After this historic achievement, so many Indian Paramotor athletes are motivated to take part in the International championships to represent India. With this impact, 11 Indian Paramotor athletes including me took part in World Paramotor Championship Test 2017 in Thailand to represent India. In this international game, I won the first Gold Medal for India. It was the second time when I created history in these sports. I am the first Indian to win Gold Medal in International Championship. Because of this golden achievement, India has come in limelight in this sports in the World. With this impact, many Indian youths motivated to learn the skills of Paramotor air adventure and to take a part in International championships. And it is progressive growth as more and more Indian Paramotor athletes are striving to win more gold medals for our country in future at the international level.
