“Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.” – Jackie Joyner-Kersee

This Mini Milkha Singh has already been engaged in various races and marathons and won accolades. Born in a small village in the Jodhpur region of the western state of Rajasthan, this girl is defying all odds.

Given The Title Of Asia’s First Little Girl With Six-Pack Abs
This is an incredible achievement for someone at such a tender age. Acquiring such a title at such a young age, Pooja says,
