Teenaged high jumpers Praveen Kumar and Nishad Kumar produced personal best jumps to take a gold medal each and set new Asian records as curtains came down on the 12th Fazza World Para Athletics Grand Prix. Praveen's and Nishad's gold medal-winning efforts were the high points in the final day's action for India who also had three silver and a bronze on Saturday, to end their campaign at the championships with 23 medals. Congratulating the team, Paralympic Committee of India president Deepa Malik said: "Our para-athletes have made us really very proud. This championship was important in regard to their returning back to shape in the build-up to Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, besides giving exposure to a few new faces."
