Sachin Chamaria Wins 6th BOCCIA National Championship

India, April 11: Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man, but sooner or later the one who wins is the one who thinks he can. Sachin Chamaria, born in Assam and raised in Delhi, is an example who proves these words every single day.

Sachin was born in Delhi on December 11, 1990, to his Father Mr. Rajnedra Chamaria and Mother Mrs. Renu Chamaria. At a very young age of 17 when every other student of his age was preparing for his board exams, Sachin met with a tragic road accident in Calcutta in the year 2008. That accident changed his life. The accident left him paralysed from the neck down involving all four limbs including the bowel bladder (i.e., Quadriplegia). He needs the assistance of a wheelchair and caretakers in order to move around and do his daily chores. It’s been 14 years since he has been wheelchair-bound.

However, this didn’t stop Sachin from pursuing his dreams of becoming an athlete. Before the injury, Sachin was training in martial arts. Due to injury, he could not pursue the discipline further. However, his love for sports drove him towards exploring other sports designed for differently-abled athletes.

BOCCIA is one such sport that has been directing and guiding the lives of many differently-abled athletes. It was introduced into the Paralympics program in 1984 and since then it has been played in over 80 countries by differently-abled athletes who require the assistance of a wheelchair including India where the game was introduced 6 years ago.

Their words of encouragement and motivation inspired the para-athletes.

Approximately 100 state-level players from 19 states participated in the game in the four categories namely BC1, BC2, BC3 and BC4. Mr. Sachin Chamaria, (31 years old, Spinal cord injury person) who is from Delhi, participated in the national championship and won a gold medal in the BC3 category. He created history by winning gold, consecutively in the second year. He also won a silver medal in the BC3 mixed doubles.
