MEDAL WITH BORROWED SHOES
His airline carrier misplaced his luggage when he reached Kazan, Russia for the 2014 Universiade, resulting in him not having his competition shoes and kit. He squeezed his 11 and a half size feet into the borrowed pair of size 10 shoes with great discomfort, but he was still able to win a silver medal. (archive.indianexpress.com, 09 Jul 2013)
