Vishwas K.S

Vishwas K.S., a 26-year old swimmer lost both his hands in a tragic accident when he was 10 years old. His father, hearing the scream of his son, tried to save him but lost his life. For a 10-year old, this incident was a nightmare.

He earns his living by performing dance, coaching swimming and karate for people with disability. Vishwas has packed off the memories of that fateful day and has refused to allow his limitation be a hindrance to his progress. He believes that when there is a will, there is a way. This young man won three medals at the 2016 Speedo Can Am Para-swimming Championships held in Canada with his true courage and hard work.
