Baduvamanda Aditya Bopanna will be representing India in the 62nd Malaysia Open Swimming Championship to be held from April 24 to 28 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Competing in National and State Swimming events, Aditya Bopanna has been training since age six and specialises in backstroke and freestyle sprint events.

Representing Karnataka and a winner of many national medals in various swimming events, Bopanna trains at the Nettakallappa Aquatic Centre in Bengaluru. He is currently pursuing his Second PUC at Vijaya College, Bengaluru.

Probably he is the first Kodava swimmer to represent India at an international event. Aditya is the son of Baduvamanda Cariappa and Sapna of Pollibetta in Virajpet. Aditya Bopanna excels in studies too and has scored 80.6 percent in Class 10 CBSE. For Aditya, getting this percentage after swimming and studying together is actually pretty good. “I squeeze in the free time I get during swimming for studies and I study almost every day after my swimming classes. Swimming has taken most of my life and has become a part of me now,” he says
