Jagwinder Singh, 24, an Armless art teacher who uses his feet to paint eyes Paralympic glory after showing cycling flair. The cycling enthusiast was inspired to buy his own bike after watching the 2012 Olympics on television and started peddling in his native town of Patran in Punjab. And much to his family’s surprise, he started cycling to nearby Patiala – a distance of 25 km – three times a week. Slowly, with the support of his friends and family, he began competing and now sees no reason why he can’t one day compete at the Paralympic Games.
He says he’s glad to be a source of inspiration in his community. Having no arms, he uses his feet to cook and eat his food, paint, and even work on his computer.
“The people who see me every day, their mindset becomes very positive, thinking ‘If he can do so much in spite of not having hands then we can do anything.’” This is one of my biggest achievements for Jagwinder Singh
His father said: “When he started going to school, at first there were many difficulties – like how he will be treated by the other kids, being handicapped.”But he never lost his spirit, we supported him fully.” And with the success of his cycling and his teaching, now they only worry about him finding love.
Jagwinder’s mother Amarjeet Kaur, 45, said: “We need a good girl for him, who will support him and live her whole life with him properly.
“As we hope for good for him, she should wish the same.”
But despite his parents’ attempts at matchmaking, he intends to stay focused on his cycling – training hard both at the gym and by cycling over 25km every day.
“Whenever I feel like doing some work I see how another person is doing this work and work out how can I do it my own way”- Jagwinder Singh
He said: “My favorite cyclist is the Canadian Joseph Veloce – he is my biggest inspiration. Likewise I wish to win a gold medal in the Olympics.
“I want to make my parents and my country proud with my cycling”
