There is no dearth of talent in our players, if they get a chance, they can win the world. This has been proved by Avani Lakhera, a parachuter from Jaipur. Till three days ago, she was wandering on the streets of Delhi for visa clearance of her mother Shweta Javeria, and coach Rakesh Manpat. Not only this, but 21-year-old Avani had also pleaded with Sports Minister Anurag Thakur for not clearing the visa.
When she got a chance to go to France with the efforts of the Sports Ministry, this daughter also left no stone unturned in her performance and won gold for the country.
In the ongoing competition in France, Avani won the gold medal with a world record. He did 10 m. Scored 250.6 points in the Air Rifle event. With this, Avani has also secured a quota for the Paris Paralympic Games to be held in 2024.
After winning the medal, she said – proud to bring home the gold After winning the gold medal, Avni wrote in a social post – ‘R2 10m Air Rifle SH1 event with a world record score in Chateaux 2022 and India’s first Paris-2024 quota I am proud to bring home Gold. Many thanks to everyone who supported me!’
She will now compete in 10m prone on the 9th of June 2022. After this, she will compete in the 50m three position on June 11. Also in 50m final on June 12. She is scheduled to return to Delhi on June 13. Her father Praveen Lekhara says that the love and affection that Avani Lekhara received from the people after winning the Paralympics has boosted her spirits.
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
