 December 8, 2017: Visually impaired swimmer Kanchanmala D Pande brought accolades to the country after winning gold medal at the World Para Swimming Championship held in Mexico on Thursday. It may be added that Pande is the first Indian to win gold at the championship.


Pande secured the top spot in 200 meters medley event in S-11 category. Kanchanmala, who works with Reserve Bank of India (RBI), was expecting a medal at Mexico but a gold medal was totally unexpected.
It may be stated that Pande is the only Indian swimmer to qualify in the women's category, was unfortunate to miss the podium finish in other events. She missed the top three finish by a whisker in 100 meters freestyle and finished fourth. She was fifth fastest in 100 meters breaststroke and backstroke.
As per sources, the 26-year-old, was selected in the Indian squad on the basis of her excellent performance at the IDM Berlin Para Swimming Championship held in July at Berlin, Germany where she was forced to borrow money and was fined for travelling without a ticket on public transport after she was not given enough money by the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI).
