Five-fold victory for Malayalee in World Dwarf Games

Jobby Mathew, hailing from a nondescript village of Pala in Kottayam district brought laurels to India and his home state of Kerala when he romped  home with 5 gold medals from the World Dwarf Games meet held in US.  A  debutant in the World Dwarf Games., this gifted sports person had bagged gold medals in five different events including shotput, javelin, badminton singles, badminton doubles and discus throw. His feat  deserves special mention as he defeated contestants from 33 countries to achieve this milestone.

In arm wrestling he has  10 international medals to his credit and was also the champion in arm wrestling for the physically challenged. Measuring only 110 cm in height, Jobby has  proven that looks indeed can be deceptive. Beneath the diminutive frame, Jobby has a never say die attitude and confidence, which helped him beat the challenges to reach the global sporting arena.
