Inhabitant of Barua, a little town in Manali, Aanchal Thakur on Tuesday made history by turning into India’s first historically speaking medallist in a worldwide skiing occasion when she won a bronze decoration at the Alpine Ejder 3200 Cup sorted out by the Federation Internationale de Ski (FIS) in Turkey.
Taking in skiing from her dad and later getting master direction and preparing from Olympian Heera Lala, the 21-year-old Aanchal at last had her day in the sun winning the decoration in the slalom class.
“Finally something unexpected happened. My first ever international medal. Federation International Ski Race (FIS). At the end turkey served me well,” she wrote in her Twitter post soon after.
The salutary messages at that point began pouring in, beginning with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi
“Well done @alleaanchal for winning a worldwide decoration in skiing! The whole country is delighted on your noteworthy achievement at the FIS International Skiing Competition in Turkey. Wishing you the absolute best for your future undertakings,” the PM tweeted.
At that point it was the turn of Sports Minister and Olympic decoration winning shooter Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.
“Well done Aanchal Thakur @alleaanchal for the Slalom Skiing Bronze in the FIS International Skiing Competition in Turkey,” Rathore said in his tweet
Aanchal’s Twitter bio mirrors her assurance to do well for the nation at the worldwide stage, and this bronze decoration could the start of that trip.
“Simply need to wave India’s Flag everywhere throughout the world,” the bio peruses.
