13-year-old Indian girl wins Asia yoga championship

Thirteen-year-old Vaishnavi of India beat hundreds of competitors to win the first Asia Level Yoga Competition.

The competition, featuring teams from five nations, was held in Thailand on May 13 and 14.

“I (am) proud of (winning) gold medal in Pacific Asia Yoga Championship in Thailand,” said Vaishnavi, displaying her medals.

“Hundreds of students were there and I won gold medal and overall championship in girls.”

Winning gold is nothing new for Vaishnavi—She has reportedly won more than 200 contests of the more than 1,000 she has entered.

June 21 is International Day of Yoga. The U.N. designated the day on the urging of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who said yoga lets people “discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world, and the nature.”
