Avani scripted history last year as she became the first Indian woman to win a gold at the Paralympics, firing her way to the top of the podium in Women’s 10m Air Rifle Standing (SH1) in Tokyo.
The 19-year-old from Jaipur, who sustained spinal cord injuries in a car accident in 2012, finished with a world record equalling score of 249.6, which also became a new Paralympic record.
Mahindra last year announced to dedicate the first customised sport utility vehicle (SUV) for people with disabilities to Avani.
Earlier, he had responded to the special request made by the President of the Paralympic Committee of India, Deepa Malik, to the Indian Automobile industry to manufacture special SUVs in India. These SUVs would make the life of people with special abilities a lot easier while traveling by road.
