Karenjeet says to BBC, ‘I am very proud of my heritage and my culture and my roots. I also would love to try and open floodgates up to having even more diverse people on the platform.’ ‘I know I am the first one, but I don’t want to be the last for sure’, she adds.
Her father, Kuldip, was also a powerlifter. He has been training her since childhood and has always had her back.
Congratulations to Karenjeet, and more power to her to win the gold!
