Moin Mustaque Junned ages 12 has within himself some immense power and will which won him two national-level gold medals at the 10th National Paralympic Swimming Championship organized by West Bengal State Council of Sports and Bengal Disabled Swimming Association in Kolkata.

Junned, a native of Kudachi in Raibag taluk who has now settled in Belgaum, has been suffering with a rare disease of zero-bone calcium. Due to the delicate nature of his bones, he has hundreds of fractures all over his body. Moin neither could stand on his feet nor eat without someone’s help. Even a slight blow can result in another fracture. The doctors have suggested the family to take utmost care.

He won gold medals in 50m freestyle and 50m backstroke.
