Arunima Sinha becomes world’s first female Amputee to scale Antarctica’s Highest Peak
Indian mountaineer Dr. Arunima Sinha has become the world’s first female Amputee to scale Antarctica’s Highest Peak – Mount Vinson on 4th January 2019. Apart from this, she was also the world’s first woman amputee to climb Mount Everest in 2013. Sinha was a national level volleyball player who was pushed from a running train by some robbers in 2011 while she was resisting them. As a result, one of her legs had to be amputated below the knee. Now, her aim is to climb all the continents’ highest peaks and hoist the National Flag of India. She has already scaled five peaks — Mt Everest, Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Ebrus, Mt Kosciuszko and Mt Aconcagua.
