New Delhi, May 20 (TIWN) Karnam Malleswari made history at the 2000 Sydney Olympics by becoming the first Indian woman to win an Olympic medal. To get there however, she had the challenge of dealing with societal taboos that come with being a woman in a sport like weightlifting apart from maneuvering the challenges that came in her sport itself.

"For a woman in a sport like weightlifting, I would always get a backlash from my relatives," said Malleswari on 'The Medal of Glory' programme.
