Sift Kaur Samra reacts on her World Record moment

India's performance at the 19th Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China in 2022 was commendable and showcased the country's growing dominance in various sports on the continental stage. Indian athletes put up a strong showing across multiple disciplines, earning a significant medal tally and making the nation proud. For the first time in the history of the Asian Games, India crossed the 100-medal mark, finishing with a total of 107 medals including 28 gold, 38 silver and 41 bronze. Sift Kaur Samra's gold medal and world record-breaking performance at the 19th Asian Games have not only etched her name in the annals of Indian sports history but have also provided a beacon of hope for the country's aspirations in the upcoming Paris Olympics. Her dedication and resilience serve as an inspiration to aspiring athletes across the nation, encouraging them to pursue excellence and bring more glory to India in the world of sports. One remarkable aspect of Samra's victory was her unawareness of the world record she had set until she faced the media. “I didn't know I created a world record. After we received our medals and I came for media interaction, I got to know about the record from media persons. It's a really good feeling, and I am happy that I made the country proud.” Samra also highlighted the overwhelming support from fellow Indians, saying, "We are trying our best and working very hard for the Paris Olympics. The entire country is supporting us." #sports #siftkaursamra #shooting #asiangames #asiangames2023 #cricket
