Narender Ranbir (born 10 July 1989) is an Indian Paralympic javelin thrower competing in F44 events. He is supported by the GoSports Foundation through the Para Champions Programme ahead of his quest to win a medal for India at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Born to a farming family near Sonepat in Haryana, Narender lost his parents in an accident when he was 3 years old and was almost entirely brought up by his grandmother. The family made their livelihood through farming. Narender has had a deformity in his left leg by birth. Initially a runner, Narender had to give up athletics due to chronic back problems. His passion for sport saw him quickly switch to javelin throw and has not looked back since.
After taking to javelin throw, Narender has been consistently performing at the highest level. He finished sixth at the London Paralympics in 2012 after which he narrowly missed out on a medal at the World Championships in Lyon, finishing fourth. Narender's best performance came at the Asian Para Games in 2014 at Incheon where he clinched the silver medal.
Married and the sole breadwinner of his family, Narender trains without a coach at the Sports Authority of India in Sonipat. He is one of India's top medal prospects at the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
