Tsunami survivor Indian cyclist Deborah creates history in Taiwan Cup Track


Ace Indian cyclist Deborah, has created history by winning five medals three silver, one bronze, along with a gold medal, at Taiwan Cup Track International event. Deborah is the first Indian cyclist to achieve this admirable feat into the elite women section.

A 20-year-old athlete achieved this victory by defeating a Malaysian top rider. Deborah’s story is so inspiring because she was just nine years old when the deadly tsunami struck her birthplace the Car Nicobar airbase where her father worked. Her entire family was displaced due to the natural calamity and she had to spend a whole day on a tree to survive before rebuilding her life from nothing.

For Deborah, cycling was just a way to survive, but she turned this into a way of living a life by winning accolades and become one of the finest women cyclists of India.

Deborah’s recent victory at Taiwan cup is a sort of result of her hard work, resilience and passion for cycling. Not only this once she met with high fever but despite being suffering from high temperature she pushed for the glory.

Previously, Deborah has also won two gold medals in the junior category in the 2012 Nationals in Amritsar and has been a regular part of the Indian squad since then.
