Though, it was gallant effort, Niranjan was not able to break his own record from last year, when he had won 10 medals at the same event.

Niranjan hails from Bengaluru and was born with a hereditary medical condition known as Spina Bifilda or clubbed feet.

In any manner, he does not let his deformity define him and he competes in almost all the swimming events in the S-8 category.
