New Delhi: Asian Games gold-medallist Indian heptathlete Swapna Burman has received a pair of customised shoes to fit her 12-toed feet. German global sportswear company Adidas created and delivered customised footwear for Swapna, who has been struggled to fit in her feet into regular shoes. “I’m so excited to finally have these pairs. I have already started training in these and I know from here on I can focus entirely on improving my performances without worrying about any pain,” Swapna said.

“The journey from here should get easier. I shall continue to work hard and keep moving towards my goal of winning honours for the country.”  The sportswear company took Swapna to their Athlete Services Lab in Herzogenaurach, Germany for a detailed footwear analysis. “Taking into consideration the unique task we had at hand, we at adidas are proud to provide Swapna with unique pairs that shall help her across the seven different disciplines of Heptathlon,” said Sharad Singla, Director – Brand Marketing, adidas India.
