Where there’s a will there’s a way.

Vishwas K.S., a 26-year-old from India with no arms, won three medals at the Canadian Para-swimming championships.

"I won a silver medal in backstroke and another in breaststroke (100 m), and bronze in butterfly (50 m) at the championships last week."

10-year-old Vishwas was working construction when he fell on live wires and was electrocuted. His father rushed to help him but died in the process. After waking from a 2-month coma Vishwas saw he lost both his arms.

“Sixteen years ago, I was watering the cemented portions at the home that we were building when I suddenly lost balance and fell on live electric wires. My father rushed to save me from being electrocuted, but lost his life. After being in coma for two months, I recovered, but lost my hands.”

However, Vishwas didn’t lose hope. He worked hard to master the butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle swimming.
