Athlete Priyanka Goswami celebrates medal with Laddu Gopal

Athlete Priyanka Goswami won the silver medal in the Birmingham Commonwealth 10000 meters race walk. She celebrated her historic win with a Laddu Gopal (baby Bhagwan Krishna with a laddu in His hand) while receiving the medal.


Priyanka earned the distinction of becoming the first Bharatiya athlete to win a medal in the commonwealth in race walking. She set a personal best record by finishing the race in 49 minutes and 38 seconds. She dedicated her win to Bhagwan Krishna and her family.

In one of her interviews, she informed the news channel she travels with her Laddu Gopal to every competition she participates in. She said Bhagwan Krishna accompanied her to Tokyo Olympics too. “I earned a podium finish due to my Laddu Gopal. He gives me internal strength.”, the Muzzafarnagar resident said.

The athlete had slipped to third place after 8 kilometers but covered the distance to earn the silver medal. Priyanka is the second racewalker to win a medal at the Commonwealth Games. Railway employee Priyanka has so far participated in three international events. She won many accolades by winning a medal in her debut Commonwealth Games. Before her, Harminder Singh won a bronze medal in the 20m racewalk in the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Priyanka has participated in 16 national competitions and won medals 14 times.

“Racing against all odds, Priyanka Goswami created a national record in women’s 20 km race walking event. Consequently, she secured her place in the Tokyo Olympics this year. She has also been selected for the Rani Laxmi Bai award”, reported OpIndia in February last year.

Several Bharatiya athletes are Dharmically rooted and have never shied away from flaunting it. Olympic medal winner Ravi Dahiya is another athlete who has boldly displayed his Hindu roots. After his successful run in the Tokyo Olympics last year, the athlete performed Jal Abhishek to fulfill his vow at a Shiva Mandir in keeping with Hindu traditions as his wish to win an Olympic medal for the country became true.


As per available information, Dahiya’s family had lit the Akhand Jyot (a lamp that’s kept burning) to ensure his victory at the Olympics. The ritual of Jal Abhishek after returning home victorious was Ravi Dahiya’s way of expressing gratitude to Mahadev.

Shuttler PV Sindhu has also often proudly (archived tweet) displayed her Hindu roots. Last year, she participated in the Bonalu festival held in Telangana. Bonalu, which symbolizes the unique culture of Telangana, was celebrated with traditional fervor and gaiety in the old city of Hyderabad. Many devotees thronged Sri Simhavahini Mahakali temple in Lal Darwaza, Sri Akkanna Madanna Mahakali temple in Haribowli, and other Mahakali temples in the old city.

Weightlifting athlete Mirabai Chanu is a Hanuman and Shiv bhakt.


Bharat’s wrestlers have always boldly displayed their Hindutva that the leftist-secular-liberal cabal loves to hate.

These athletes show how ordinary Hindus are spiritually connected to Dharma. The Lutyens cabal hates such an open display of Dharma. Hence, the cabal attempts to discredit such acts of bhakti and if it cannot succeed, then chooses to negate them.
