Bhubaneswar: Twin City Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi on Thursday felicitated Constable Anupama Sahoo for bringing laurels for the State.
Sahoo belongs to Bhubaneswar Urban Police District (UPD) and she won a Bronze medal in Jujitsu Championship in Chung Ju World Martial Arts Masterships 2019, South Korea.
Admitting that she was both happy and nervous when she began her journey, Sahoo said, "I crossed the language barrier as my solo goal was that I have to bring back a medal. I wish that my win would act as an inspiration for my juniors. I lost to the Gold medal winner who is of 66 kg category. While I weigh 50 kg, I did fight in a higher category and unfortunatelylost. I promise to work harder for 2022 Asian Games so that I change the colour of my medal.”
