kavita dalal hails from a small village called malvi (julana) of the jind district in the state of haryana. the village has a population of under 6000 people according to the 2011 indian census and doesn’t exactly have the best facilities for budding women athletes. she credits her elder brother sandeep dalal for encouraging her to complete higher studies and to become a weightlifter.kavita devi, india’s former powerlifter and south asian games gold medallist, will make history as the first indian woman wrestler to appear in world wrestling entertainment (wwe). he has been selected to compete in the mae young classic, which is the first ever wwe tournament for women. The devi hails from haryana and underwent rigorous training under former wwe champion, the great khali at his punjab-based wrestling promotion and training academy. the wrestler came into limelight after participating in the wwe dubai try-out in april this year. her strong performance impressed the talent scouts. devi was an accomplished kabaddi player in high school. in 2016, she won gold in the 75kg weightlifting division at the south asian games. inside the ring, devi has racked up victories using a head-caving roundhouse kick.as a sashastra seema bal constable from haryana, devi shot to fame after a viral video. she wrestled a woman wrestler named b b bull bull at the continental wrestling entertainment (cwe), promoted by the great khali, in a salwar kameez.
kavita was a posted constable with the ssb and retired as a sub inspector, which means that she has had all of this training. we hope nobody messes with this badass woman, for their own sake! constables and officers of the sashastra seema bal are deployed on the indo-nepal and the indo-bhutan borders. the cadres of ssb are trained in various techniques of armed warfare and are given specialised training in guerrilla warfare, counter-insurgency measures, intelligence operations, demolitions and survival in extreme weather. he had started training in the sport in 2002 at faridabad, haryana, eventually moving to training facilities in lucknow, uttar pradesh. she has been a multiple time national senior weightlifting champion since 2007.kavita left her position as a sub inspector at ssb to focus on her sporting career in 2010, as she wasn’t being given permission to compete in several tournaments by the government, even causing her to miss out on an international tournament in russia, which was the last straw for her.
