After breaking the personal record for the most number of qualifying athletes, India have surpassed all expectations when it comes to success at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo. 

The Indian para-athletes have won 19 medals in total, putting them within the top 25 countries with the most medals at the Games. The distribution is 5 gold medals, 8 silvers and 6 bronze medals. 

India’s performance at the 2020 Paralympic Games is their best ever in an international multi-sport event. The previous record was 13 at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics. The previous best for the para-athletes was 4 medals throughout the tournament, and they have surpassed that record by a huge margin.


Here is the list of every Indian athlete that managed to earn a medal at the Games: 

  • Avani Lekhara – Gold – Women’s 10m Air Rifle Standing SH1 
  • Pramod Bhagat – Gold – Men’s singles SL3 badminton 
  • Krishna Nagar – Gold – Men’s singles SH6 badminton 
  • Sumit Antil – Gold – Men’s Javelin Throw F64 
  • Manish Narwal – Gold – Mixed 50m Pistol SH1
  • Bhavinaben Patel – Silver – Women’s Singles Class 4 Table Tennis 
  • Singhraj – Silver – Mixed 50m Pistol SH1 
  • Yogesh Kathuniya – Silver – Men’s Discus F56
  • Nishad Kumar – Silver – Men’s High Jump T47 
  • Mariyappan Thangavelu – Silver – Men’s High Jump T63 
  • Praveen Kumar – Silver – Men’s High Jump T64 
  • Devendra Jhajharia – Silver – Men’s Javelin F46 
  • Suhas Yathiraj – Silver – Men’s Singles Badminton SL4

India only won 12 medals from 1968 through 2016, and the 54-person contingent has managed to make the country proud by outdoing their able-bodied counterparts in the same venue. The Indian Olympics team returned with 7 medals in total, and the para-athletes have clearly highlighted that they too, are capable of such stellar achievements.
