Bhavani Devi competed in fencing while table tennis player Manika Batra made a name for herself in the country.
The first of five medals were won by wrestler Sakshi Malika in 2016 in Rio. This was the first medal India won in the competition after 12 days. Sakshi, India’s first female wrestler to make her debut at the time, says she gained a lot of confidence after a month of training in Spain with the world and Olympic medalists.
In physical competitions such as wrestling, young girls usually compete against well-known competitors. According to Sakshi, her rivals say that she is the kind of girl who wrestles with boys. No one will marry her. Her ears will bend and her body will not be like that of a girl. But my parents’ opinion was quite the opposite. “I’m good at sports,” he said. That was enough for me. ‘
The spirit got a chance
