Indian Record Holder in 105+ kg
Hailing from Khanna city, Ludhiana, Gurdeep started weightlifting at comparatively later than most of the athletes. He started at the age of 16. He comes from a farmer family of Punjab.
In his first World Championships, his 3rd IWF tournament, he created three national records in his category. His journey and what he has achieved in this small period of training is really remarkable.
India’s chief weightlifting coach, Vijay Sharma, is the most inspirational person in his career.
India can expect many more medals from him in coming years.
