Sakshi Malik became the first Indian female grappler to win a medal at the Olympics. The 24-year-old from Rohtak, who had won a silver and a bronze in the 2014 Commonwealth and Asian Games respectively, clinched the bronze in Rio in the 58-kg category through repechage. Her rise in fame and stature from Haryana—notorious for female foeticide—is significant and has made her the brand ambassador for the state's Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign.
