Sikkim’s Jiwan Mishra bags silver medal in Special World Winter Games

FROM SIKKIM EXPRESS

Jiwan Mishra, one of the participants in the Special World Winter Games from India has bagged a silver medal in Alpine Skiing under male category.
The 16-year-old hailing from Maney Dara in South Sikkim was one of the six participants from India.
The sport event was held at Bosio, IDHAO, USA from February 9. He was accompanied by his brother Kapil Mishra and his teacher RP Dhakal.
Jiwan, who is studying in Class VI, suffers from mild mental retardation.
Expressing happiness on the achievement of Jiwan Mishra, the area director of
Special Olympic Bharat, Sikkim Chapter Dr BP Dhakal said, we are really proud of Jiwan as he has not only brought laurels for the state but also for the country. He managed to bring silver medal despite little training on Alpine Skiing at Narkanda, Himachal Pradesh.
“Nirmal Dahal (the gold medallist) and Jiwan Mishra are a beacon of hope for many physically challenged children,” he said. It may be noted here Nirmal Dahal from Sikkim had bagged gold medal in the Special Olympic held in China last year.
Special Olympic Bharat, Sikkim Chapter has planned a rousing welcome to the silver medallist on February 20 at Rangpo, Dr Dhakal added.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
