Weightlifting as a sport has always been very close to my heart. I have spent my entire lifetime in preaching this individual sport. Yes, it has returned to me with name, fame and everything that hard work waits you to shower with, as a part of its result.
My biggest achievement till date is definitely my Olympic medal but my journey never stopped there. When I look back at it at from the 17th year of Olympic victory, I feel to give back more to the sport. After so many accolades, appreciations and honors, my grit and commitment to take this sport to a newer level gets a new boost.
To take my dream further of taking the sport of weightlifting to newer generations and to an international level, I am launching a foundation that is called as KarnamMalleswari Foundation. The aim of the Foundation is to fulfill the requirement of budding and deserving talent so that our medal tally increases and shines bright in coming years of Olympics and various World level Championships. To fulfill the dreams our academy - National Weightlifting And Powerlifting High Performance Training And Coaching Centre (NWPHPTC), serves all the budding and deserving talent to pursue their course of choice. The academy is a part of our Foundation that serves the sports sector apart from the social sector of the society.
Our continuous efforts to serve the women, children and senior citizens of the society will always be in action, 24 x 7, to attain maximum results.
I would also like to thank Sports Authority of India, Government of India and the entire weightlifting fraternity who helped me in achieving my goals and enabled me to carry forward this noble cause. I would also like to thank Indian Sports Fan who helped me to maximize the reach of my message and, in compiling this booklet.
I wish great luck to current and upcoming weightlifting and powerlifting talent!
I have been serving the field of sports since past 33 years yet my enthusiasm to keep serving is fresh like an excited child. After Karnam’s Bronze in Olympics and the struggle that she has been through, my motivation doubled up to serve each budding talent.
Sports is one such thing that we breathe day in and out. It’s is an art as well that lets us realize our social responsibilities. Having surrendered our lives to the field, social responsibility becomes our dharma and karma to follow. This is why, our Foundation not only look towards the sporting aspect but feeds the social sector as well. Our main dimensions are Women, Senior Citizens and Children.
With this initiative, I and Karnam, we both aim to take the level of social and apoeting sector of society to a newer level. We want every child to grow and live his dream to the fullest without any compromise. In the sports sector, not only weightlifting but we also aim to revamp the image of powerlifting as a sport.
I appeal each and every parent of this country to let your child play and fulfill his dreams. Fret not about the infrastructure and facilities as long as people like us are there to serve the country.
“Let every child play &fulfill his dreams with a ray of hope falling on the pillars like a beam”
