CanIndia: Google was the first coach of Paralympics silver medallist Praveen Kumar

CanIndia: Google was the first coach of Paralympics silver medallist Praveen Kumar. “Having no knowledge about para-athletics, high jumper Praveen Kumar, who won the silver medal in Tokyo on Friday, depended on Google for basic information about the sport. ‘I would watch videos of high jump on Google and try and learn from it. There was nobody to teach me. Later, during a district-level meeting, I was told about coach Dr. Satyapal and met him and he agreed to train me,’ said Praveen Kumar, who won silver in Men’s High Jump T44 at the Paralympic Games on Friday.”
