Kajol Sargar, from Maharashtra who is in news for being the first gold medallist, is the daughter of a tea stall vendor. 16-year-old Kajol Sargar’s sports journey first began three years ago, when she started watching her brother Sanket train as a weightlifter during her daily visits to the gym. She watched him climb up the lifting ladder and became one of India’s top lifters, but since weight lifting is seen mostly as a guy sport in India, she only watched but never aspired to take up the sport herself.
