Paralympic Swimmer Sharath Gayakwad nailed it to the Forbes Under-30 Superachievers from Asia for the year 2017. The 25-year-old is India’s first paralympic swimmer, coach and Arjuna Award winner who has won 96 medals representing India.
“Swimming wasn’t enough – he realised that the struggle to find swim apparel was still difficult in India – so he formed Gamatics, an aggregator between international brands and domestic retailers, for anyone to find swimwear in India,” Forbes said.
Olympians Dipa Karmakar and Sakshi Malik have been named too. A total of 53 Indians, second to China’s 76 achievers, have been named.
