Jagwinder Singh (popularly known as Super Singh), a resident from Patran, a small village near Patiala in India came into the spotlight when he participated in the 25 KM Para-boys Challenge at the Chandigarh State Cycling Championship where he bagged the Gold Medal! He was born without hands, but, his fascination for cycling started when he saw his sister cycling in front of him as a child. Despite his family warning him not to cycle, he still went ahead, sneaking out at night to practice balancing in the dark and narrow by lanes of his locality. Today he cycles more than 25 KM a day.
Jagwinder and his parents didn’t have the required funds to buy him a cycle, so he took up teaching art to children at a local school, saved up whatever money he earned and bought himself a bike.
Today, not only was he listed as one of the Hindustan Times under 30 Young Achievers, but also has been a State Champion and an awarded painter.
Super Singh dreams to win the Asian Para-Cycling Championship 2017 and bring glory to his country, India.
This race is going to happen early next year, for which Super Singh needs a new customized bicycle – so that he can get training in time to be ready for the race. Below is the picture of the customize d bicycle that he needs, which would cost USD 6690 (INR 450,000). The bicycle will be customized to ensure that he’s able to ride it competitively.
