Ski course for differently-abled people concludes at Gulmarg

Gulmarg (J-K) [India], Mar.14 : The All Jammu and Kashmir Sports Association of the Deaf recently organized a ten-day long special snow ski course event for the differently-abled people in Jammu and Kashmir's Gulmarg.

Fifteen boys of deaf and dumb category from different parts of Kashmir Valley participated in the event, which began on March 4.

"We are trying to prepare them for a state-level championship. We have got a separate category in Olympics for differently-abled people. So, it's our motive to excel these boys to a level that they can even take part in a national-level championship," said Mohammad Yusuf, the organizer of the show.

"It was a great challenge for the trainers to interpret to the participants, but the trainees of the deaf and dumb institute could make it easy for them as they had mediators who guided the participants on different techniques of skiing," he added.

A skill test was held on the event's last day today..
