India swept all three medals in Men’s High Jump T63 and Men’s Club Throw F51 events with Shailesh Kumar and Pranav Soorma clinching Gold in the respective categories to begin their Hangzhou Asian Para Games with a bang.
Shailesh Kumar set an Asian Para Games record of 1.82 Mt. to win Men’s High Jump T63 Gold while compatriots Mariyappan Thangavelu (1.80 Mt.) and Govindbhai Ramsingbhai Padhiyar (1.78 Mt.) took Silver and Bronze respectively.
