My name is Niharika Vashisht and this Women’s Day I’d love to share my story. I’m a professional Track and Field athlete competing in Long and Triple Jump at national and international level. It all began two years ago when competitions were put on hold due to the pandemic, I decided to make the sport more visible if not through competitions then through social media. I started uploading my training videos on Instagram and soon realised that people are actually getting motivated to follow the sport watching all those training videos. I’ve been in the game for past ten years but a sport like Triple Jump hasn’t been been know by people like it has in the past two years. I even got to work in a commercial with Mr Akshay Kumar for a national brand. Till date I have more than 100k followers on Instagram and it feels great to see people watching and following your sport that was once unknown.
