Guest Lecture on Karnam Malleswari

In connection with their unit on the famous weightlifter Karnam Malleswari, Grade IX had a guest lecture by one of the PEs, Mr. Shahbaz. Malleswari is best known as a weightlifter who won a Bronze medal in the 2000 Summer Olympics at Sydney. She became the first Indian woman to stand on an Olympic victor's podium and she was the only Indian to win a medal in the 2000 games.

He not only explained about some technical aspects of the sport but also showed a PPT on her journey from a small town in Andhra Pradesh to Olympics. Students really enjoyed the guest lecture and were amazed to learn the dedication and hard work required to succeed in sports.
