Daughter of landless farmer, CWG medallist Harjinder Kaur gained strength cutting fodder at home

Kaur has been successful in winning a bronze medal in the 71 kg category of women’s weightlifting. Living in a one-room house, Kaur gained her muscle strength by cutting fodder on the manual chaff-cutting machine. She used to cut straw on ‘toka’ to feed the buffaloes at her house. It was the game of Kabaddi for which Kaur joined a camp at the Punjabi University in 2016. The turning point in her sports journey came when Punjabi University’s weightlifting coach Paramjeet Sharma asked her to adopt weightlifting sport.
