Adil Ansari

Adil Ansari lost 90% of his motor function following a spinal cord injury 16 years ago. Being wheel-chair bound did not stop him from making a name for himself. Adil is a former National level champion in Para swimming and a National level champion in Para Archery. He has also made his way into the 2015 Limca Book of Records for non-sports related achievements. Adil is quite self-motivated and has his eyes set on the 2020 Paralympics, where he aims to make India proud again.
