After Hima Das, now Tunlai Narzary of Assam has made India proud by bagging a gold medal in shot put in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

Tunlai, hailing from Ghilaguri Dotma village in Kokrajhar, had participated at the 22nd Tatyana Kolpakova Memorial International Athletics Meet which was held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan recently. Tunlai achieved the feat at a record of 13.83 m in women’s shot put.

The Kokrajhar girl started her sports career with a 100-m sprinter and later joined the Sports Authority of India‘s (SAI)‘s Kokrajhar centre in 2008. She is, at present, engaged with the 10th Battalion of Assam Police.

Her first international competition was in 2013 when she was named in the Indian contingent for the second South Asian Junior Athletics Championship. The competition was held in Ranchi, Jharkhand.

The same year brought the much-awaited moment of fame for the athlete as she finally got to clinch a gold medal with a throw of 12.09 m.
