Women Fitness gets in a candid chat with Aanchal Thakur as she talks about sportsmen hardships, fitness and her journey.
You became the first Indian skier to win a medal in an international skiing event in 2018. Share the journey that inspired you to follow this sport and become a role model.
I think my journey has been very challenging yet very fulfilling, since when I started with the sport not a lot of people knew about it, I remember training very hard for the sport in summer and waiting for snow to come so that I could practice it. I put my heart and soul into the sport. My forever inspiration has to be my father who used to educate people about the sport, he used to go to schools to make people know about it. So looking up at him I gave my best for the sport.
