Geeta Phogat: Profile 2012 London OlympicsFull Name: Geeta Phogat

Age: 23 years

Weight: 55 kg

Sports: Wrestling (Freestyle)

Geeta Phogat made history when she became the first ever female wrestler from India to qualify for the Olympics.

The 23-year-old booked a berth in the 55-kg category after clinching gold at the Asian Qualifying Tournament in Astana, Kazakhstan, in April. However, her younger sister Babita, also a wrestler, failed to make the cut.

Coached by her father Mahavir Singh who himself is a former wrestler, Geeta grew up in a strict environment, competing with the boys.

Her claim to fame was the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, where she won a gold medal in the women’s 55-kg category.

Geeta has expressed full confidence of a good show at the Olympics.
