In an exclusive interview with Catch Karo, Sanket Sargar explained how he got started in weightlifting.
“It was extremely difficult training college and managing the shop while also maintaining the training and gym.” It wasn’t impossible, but handling the shop with father, as well as doing good training and not wasting time,” he added.
“My parents have done everything they can to provide as a result of their hard work.” I need to make my parents proud by working hard”, he stated.
