German global sportswear company Adidas created and delivered customised footwear for Swapna, who has been struggling to fit in her feet into regular shoes.

“I’m so excited to finally have these pairs. I have already started training in these and I know from here on I can focus entirely on improving my performances without worrying about any pain,” Swapna said.

“The journey from here should get easier. I would like to thank the Adidas team in India and at the Athlete Services Lab for helping me with this solution,” said Swapna. “I shall continue to work hard and keep moving towards my goal of winning honours for the country.”
