Meghana Gundlapally: The pioneer

Updated: Jun 28

India is one of the most populated countries in the world, but when it comes to the world of sports and athletics, they often fall short, especially in rhythmic gymnastics. However, because of Meghana Reddy Gundlapally, thankfully, India has begun to receive recognition in international competitions as Meghana continues to grow as one of the many faces of Indian sports.

The world of rhythmic gymnastics in Asia is dominated by the likes of Uzbekistan, China, Japan, and Kazakstan. India, however, is on the far end. While some argue that it is a lack of support for the athletes, others argue that it is a cultural difference; both of these angels are discussed during Meghana's interview on the 49th episode of The Globally Ballin Podcast.
