Get out and give it a go

Jogging 200 meters at that speed. You will sense your lungs in your palm. Simran was born with ears that were only partially developed and spent seven months in an incubator. Doctors had lost faith and were uncertain about her chances of surviving. However, after 22 years, she achieved the distinction of being the first Indian woman to qualify for the 100-meter track event at the Tokyo Paralympics. Keep in mind the name Simran Sharma for Paris.
She is coached by her husband, who serves as a soldier in the Indian Army. The family had to borrow money and liquidate their land to finance her education.
