Avani Lekhara has become the 1st Indian women to win two Paralympic medals at a single edition of the Paralympics on September 3, 2021.
In the 1984 Paralympics, Joginder Singh Sodhi had won multiple medals in single edition of the Games. He clinched one silver and two bronze medals.
She is an Indian Paralympian and rifle shooter who won a gold medal in 10m air rifle standing as well as a bronze medal in 50m air rifle standing at 2020 Paralympics. She is currently ranked at World No 5 in Women’s 10m Air Rifle standing SH1. GoSports Foundation has been supporting her through the Para Champions Programme. She became the first Indian woman to win multiple medals at a single Paralympic Games.
She started her shooting in 2015 after getting inspired by former Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra. In 2012, a car accident at the age of 11 left her with complete paraplegia. Then, her father encouraged her to join sports. She was trained in archery but she moved to shooting as she found it to be her true passion. Coach Suma Shirur is the key influence behind her success at Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.
