#childrenofblubworld - Moin Junnedi

Updated: Oct 19, 2019

Moin Junnedi suffers from Brittle Bone Disease and has had more than 300 fractures in his life. But this didn’t stop the young lad, with fused legs, and confined to wheelchair, from living his dream.

He is swimming champion and has won a gold medal in the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports World Junior Games in 2013 that were held in Mayaguez in Puerto Rico. He has also bagged the fourth position in backstroke swimming in the same competition a year later at Stoke Mandeville Sports Stadium in the UK. At 18 inch height, the teenager is one of the best disabled swimmers in the world for his age.

With no coach or club ready to train Moin, popular swimming instructor Umesh Kalghatgi, offered to train him. The courageous boy, hailing from Belgaum in Karnataka, now aims to win the Paralympics Gold.
