India’s star Wushu player Sadia Tariq has made the entire nation and Jammu and Kashmir proud by winning gold medal in the Moscow Wushu Stars Championship held in the Russian capital from February 22 to 28.

Sadia is receiving appreciation from one and all for her brilliant achievement in the world of sports.

Sadia Tariq, who hails from Bemina, Srinagar, has consecutively bagged gold medals in 19th and 20th Junior National Championship held in Haryana and Jalandhar respectively. In the Moscow Wushu Stars Championship, Sadia won the gold medal by defeating a local favourite at the event.

Sadia, who came into sports at a young age, did her schooling from Presentation Convent Srinagar and started playing in school events when she was in her first grade.

“When I was in my first grade our fitness teacher came to our class and announced about the sports tourney in our school, I was the first one to register for the event,” Sadia said.

Appreciating her parents’ support from the very young age, Sadia said, “I remember my father just told me if I am interested in sports, he will always support me. I was very happy and choose Taekwondo as the game and from the very next day I started my training.”

The star Wushu player made a fervent appeal to all parents of J&K to support and encourage their wards, particularly girls in sports.
