When Mahavir Singh Phogat got inspired from Karnam Malleswari

“My father had the knowledge of wrestling so when he saw that four girls were born one after the other, he drafted us into wrestling. That was the time when weightlifter Karnam Malleswari had won bronze in (Sydney) Olympics, so our dad thought that if being a girl, Karnam can bring home a medal from Olympics then why can’t his daughters do the same?” recalls Ritu Phogat (Wrestler)

This is how Daya Kaur (Mahavir Singh Phogat’s Wife) got worried about her daughters

I told my husband not to push the girls into the sport. I was worried about how they will ever get married as pehelwans wearing shorts and cutting their hair! They would wrestle boys as there were no other girls.
