Brother, Dev, wound down his own wrestling career to focus on his sister as her main sparring partner. (indianexpress.com, 14 Dec 2015)

Additional information

INFLUENCE
Once thought it was "embarrassing" that her father had to set up shop outside venues where she was wrestling. "I would wonder why other parents didn't have to do this. But now understands why her father sold those goods. "It gives me a lot of pride. I want him to keep doing this. Perhaps, even when I am competing in Tokyo (at the 2020 Olympic Games)."
