Once upon a time, my father used to sell motorcycles and hockey kits.


Today is a big day for the Indian women’s hockey team in the Olympics. The Indian women’s hockey team is set to face Argentina in the semifinals today.

India’s women’s hockey team has entered the semifinals for the first time by beating Australia 1-0 at the Tokyo Olympics. Due to this, the eyes of the entire country are on the 16 girls who have taken the women’s hockey team to the last four for the first time in history. But today we are going to talk about the hero of the last match Gurjeet Kaur.

Born into a peasant family, Gurjeet Kaur’s goal has made India history. India beat Australia by drag flicker Gurjeet Kaur’s goal. The family of Gurjeet, 25, of Miyadi Kalan (Miyadiya) village, Ajnala, Amritsar, had nothing to do with hockey. For Gurjit’s father, Satnam Singh, his daughter’s education was paramount. Gurjeet and his sister Pradeep received their early education at a private school near the village. After this she went to a boarding school in Kairon village of Tarn Taran. This is where Gurjeet’s hobby of hockey began. She was impressed by the girls playing hockey and decided to try her hand at it. Gurjeet’s family’s financial situation was also normal at that time. That is why Gurjeet’s father also sold a motorcycle to buy a hockey kit for his daughter.

The two sisters soon mastered the sport and also received scholarships. Gurjeet Kaur later graduated from Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar. Gurjeet had enrolled in BA Arts in this college and she played in the college academy for about 5 years. Gurjeet Kaur’s performance today has made the whole of India admire her. Gurjit Kaur’s nickname is Guri. He loves hockey as well as kabaddi. After qualifying for the semi-finals of the Indian women’s hockey team, Gurjeet Kaur’s family members are currently in a happy mood.
