Puja Tomar Biography
Tomar achieved an impressive feat by becoming a five-time Gold Medalist at the National Wushu Championships. Her dedication to the sport also led her to represent India in the Wushu World Championship in 2013. As she grew older, Tomar chose to pursue Wushu, also known as Chinese Kung Fu, as a means to earn extra income. Surprisingly, she excelled, proving herself to be superior to her peers. At 25 years old, she now has the opportunity to exhibit her skills on a global stage, a remarkable achievement in a country where female representatives in combat sports remain relatively scarce.
