Sandeep Sejwal too breaks into the World top 100
Olympian Sandeep Sejwal's amazing swims at the Beijing Olympic Games helped him become the first Indian swimmer to break into the top 100 in the world this year in two events - 100 and 200m Breaststroke.
Sandeep was ranked 92 and 96 in the 100 and 200m Breaststroke respectively (as of 17-Aug-08) as per FINA's World ranking.
In July this year Virdhawal Khade became the first Indian swimmer to break into the top 100 in the world this year in the 50m Freestyle.
Swimming is amongst the biggest sports in terms of participation and just making it into the World ranking list, i.e. top 150, is highly creditable considering the number of swimmers that compete around the world. Indian swimmers are steadily climbing up the ranks and making their presence felt in World swimming.
Go India Go!!
