Nishad Kumar, a para-athlete, has won another medal for India at the current Tokyo Paralympics. In the high jump event, he earned a silver medal for India.

Kumar also set an Asian record with a leap of 2.06 metres. Roderick Townsend and Dallas Wise, both of the United States, went on to win gold and bronze medals, respectively. Nishad and Wise both completed on the same mark, however Nishad did it on his first try while Wise needed two. As a consequence, Nishad was awarded silver.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to congratulate the athlete for his win. He wrote: “More joyful news comes from Tokyo! Absolutely delighted that Nishad Kumar wins the Silver medal in Men’s High Jump T47. He is a remarkable athlete with outstanding skills and tenacity. Congratulations to him. #Paralympics”.
