CN Janaki was a severly disabled person who became the first disabled person to swim across the English channel. You can read more about this courageous lady on http://books.google.co.in/books?id=1uCmwfTR2r0Cpg=SA7-PA265lpg=SA7-PA265dq=CN+Janaki+swimmersource=blots=Xl7PfeCZa7sig=E_edRQj2TkzLDlVRaaYEX88ufnghl=ensa=Xei=La3gUbWPNKSwiAeejIHoDgved=0CEAQ6AEwBg#v=onepageq=CN%20Janaki%20swimmerf=false, http://www.ask.com/question/history-of-english-channel-swimmers, http://www.ask.com/question/who-was-the-cn-janaki-the-english-channel-swimmer, http://www.ask.com/question/first-english-channel-swimmer, http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_was_the_CN_Janaki_the_English_Channel_Swimmer. CN Janaki was the epitome of courage who through her determination and sheer grit achieved her dreams in the face of challenges. In July 1992, CN Janaki who can swim only with the upper portion of her body crossed the English Channel. The lower half of her body is completely paralysed and hence she can use only the upper half of her body to swim. She learnt swimming at quite a later part of her life at the age of 30. She converted this hobby into a passion and took part in various competitions within the country. She has also been part of competitions in foreign countries. She amazed all spectators with her courage and determination when she participated in a relay swimming race along with five other members. The chilling waters of the English Channel presented all kinds of hardships but CN Janaki never gave in. Although she wanted to swim solo across the Channel, she had to remain content with the relay swim. Dont you think this is amazing?
