Geeta Phogat is one of India's finest wrestlers and created history to be the first Indian women's wrestler who qualified for the Olympic Games. She is also India's first wrestler to win a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. She was trained by her father Mahavir Phogat and her sisters Babita, Vinesh, Ritu, Priyanka and Sangeeta are wrestlers.

Ajinkya Rahane's wife Radhika also took to Instagram to further the cause and share a photo of her baby bump with a strong message. Radhika posted, 'Have more of milk and milk products. Don’t have that much coffee. And are you taking the supplements you need? Being pregnant means being ready for extra care and extra attention from just about everyone. And the flood of information can only make things confusing. I have found it helpful to stick to the basics and keep track of my daily nutrient intake. Among all nutrients, I got to know how adequate iodine is essential for an expecting mother as well as the baby since first 1000 days of life are considered to be the critical period for Brain development for which Iodine is an essential nutrient.. Thankfully, Tata Salt with iodine is already a part of my diet. Thus, I am not #MissingI. @desh_ka_namak. Requesting all mothers @momspresso to pledge their support in raising awareness for #MissingI'
