Good Spoirts :  ANSHU MALIK MAKES HER DAD PROUD

Dharamveer Malik competed in international competitions as a junior wrestler in the 1990s. A knee injury cut his wrestling career short and he never won a medal, but he recently got to enjoy a podium finish vicariously through his 19-year-old daughter, Anshu Malik.

Competing in the 57 kg class at the World Cup in Belgrade, Serbia, Anshu won a silver medal, bringing tears to her father.

“My daughter has fulfilled my dream of winning an international medal,” he told The Indian Express.

The Haryana native had expected his son, Shubham, to become a wrestler, but it was Anshu whom the sport captivated. Dharamveer quit his job with the Central Industrial Security Force to accompany her to various training sites around the country.

“We’d stay at rented accommodations and I’d cook for her to make sure she focuses only on her wrestling,” he said.
