NEW DELHI: The Delhi government on Tuesday appointed former Olympic medalist weightlifter Karnam Malleswari as the first Vice Chancellor of Delhi Sports University.
“The Lt Governor, who is also Chancellor of Delhi Sports University, is pleased to appoint the Padmashri awardee as first Vice Chancellor of the university,” said an official order.
Former weightlifter Malleswari is the first Indian woman to bring home an Olympic medal.
She created history at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 by lifting 110 kilogram and 130 kilogram in the ‘snatch’ and ‘clean and jerk’ categories.
The Delhi Assembly had in 2019 passed a bill to set up a Delhi Sports University (DSU), which will offer graduation, post-graduation and doctorate degrees in cricket, football and hockey among other sports.
