I was born with a medical condition named Spina Bifida and have undergone 19 major/minor surgeries since birth. I took up swimming as part of aqua therapy and fell in love with the sport and rest as people say is history.

Up Close, and Personal

To me, sport is…

anything which has physical activity which not only refreshes your body but also refreshes your mind.

On a typical training day,

I swim: for 4 to 5 hours

I eat: calorie specific food

I wear: my swimsuit and tracks

I listen: to fast beats

I recover: by my nutrition and good rest

I cross train: alternatively

My idea of an effective training session is…

a good endurance session in swimming with good weight lifting.

The moment when I discovered my athletic potential was…

when I won my first international medal 7 years ago.

Unived Athlete Niranjan MThe three biggest lessons I have learnt so far in my athletic career is…

1. Injuries are part of your journey and you comeback stronger from it.
2. Winning and losing is secondary , racing is everything.
3. Giving your best is not just by winning medals but also coming out of the pool with that satisfaction of swimming your best.

Before a big race…

I listen to loud fast beats music.

The toughest competition of my life was…

in 2020 Norway, where I won a gold in my event and missed the “A” qualifying time by milliseconds for the upcoming Paralympics 2021.

The most memorable moment of my sporting career so far…

getting the title “Junior World Champion”.

My training sanctuary is…

My Pool.

My dream starting line is…

at the Paralympic finals.

I nourish my soul with…

some good training and good nutrition.

Unived helps me…

with my endurance and recovery.

I have chosen to associate with Unived because…

its that vegan supplement brand that helps me during my sport and also after my sport.

My favourite Unived product is…

Elite Drink Mix and the Unived Elite Gel.
