___________________________________________________________________________

As I turn 25 this year, I'd love to help India's premier athlete Sakina Khatun and help her to represent India at the paralympics in Rio 2016. 

The biggest dream of any athlete is to represent their country at the highest level. All athletes, irrespective of their physical attributes, deserve equal opportunities to train and compete.

Sakina is one of India’s premier women Powerlifters. Sakina is currently ranked no. 4 in the IPC World Rankings and is one of India’s best prospects of winning medals at next year’s Paralympics in Rio. Her most recent lift of 85kg this year helped herwin the bronze medal at the IPC Powerlifting World Cup. You can read about her in the news **here**

Sakina however aspires to lift over 95kg at the 2016 Paralympics and aims to claim the gold medal inthat competition.

According to her coach Farman Basha, she already lifts a weight of 95kg+ during everyday training, but requires more exposure to high performance international training, with thebest equipment and facilities, and international tournaments, to produce similar results incompetitions.
