Watch: Swapna Barman’s family in tears while watching her win gold for India

Swapna Barman's mother broke down while watching her daughter win gold for India. Swapna's craving for chocolate could well have cost her gold at the Asian Games. Just before her competition began on Tuesday, she started writhing from tooth pain, forcing her to compete with a medicated tape covering her right jaw. With 6026 points, Swapna won gold by a massive margin, with China's Wang Qingling coming second with 5954 points and Yuki Yamasaki of Japan notching a personal best of 5873 on way to bronze. Life has given Swapna more pain and grief than joy. Born with six toes on both feet, she has had to endure the pain of wearing normal shoes as no shoe-manufacturing company was ready to make customised shoes for her.
