Jadhav's outstanding performance at the Asian Para Games, where he clocked an impressive time of 32.22 seconds, clinched Paris Paralympics quota for the upcoming mega event in Paris. This accomplishment adds to Jadhav's legacy in para swimming.

Suyash Jadhav first gained international recognition in 2015 when he became the sole Indian Para swimmer to achieve the 'A' qualifying mark for the 2016 Paralympics in Rio. Fast forward to 2023, and he emerged as the lone Indian swimmer to secure a medal at the Hangzhou Asian Para Games, held in October.

The veteran para swimmer, who had the privilege of interacting with the Honourable Prime Minister along with other Indian medallists, has been an inspiration in the world of para sports. Jadhav's journey into swimming began at the age of three, encouraged by his father, a former state-level swimmer. Despite facing adversity with the loss of both palms and wrists due to electrocution, Suyash's determination brought him back to training two years later, marking the beginning of an extraordinary career.

Jadhav's accolades include winning silver and bronze medals at the IWAS World Games in Sochi, Russia, in 2015. He continued to make history by securing medals, including a gold in the 50m Butterfly, at the Jakarta Asian Para Games in 2018. In 2021, he once again qualified for the Tokyo Paralympics, reaffirming his status as one of India's leading para swimmers.
