India's Nishad Kumar thanked his parents and his coach after winning a silver medal in the men's high jump (T46/47) event at the Tokyo Paralympics on Sunday. Speaking to NDTV after his medal win, Nishad said, "My coach Satyanarayana worked on every movement of mine; that is why I managed to jump so high." He said encouragement from his parents also helped after he lost a hand to an accident as a kid. "My parents never made me feel that I wouldn't be able to play because I had one hand. They have always supported me, motivated me to play. That is why I have been able to reach here," he said.
