Later, she went to Punjabi University in Patiala, where her skills were noticed by Paramjeet Sharma, a weightlifting champion of the 1990 Commonwealth Games.I was surprised at how much power she had as a teenager when we put her into the tug of war teams. She undertook some national tours. It took some time to convince her to shift to weightlifting. There were times when she would return to her village and did not show too much of interest in weightlifting. But she would always return. Today I can say it was the right decision to make her a weightlifter.”.Subsequently, Harjinder Kaur clinched medals in various weightlifting competitions like a gold medal at the 3rd Women Inter-State Senior National Weightlifting Competition, a silver medal 35th Women Senior National Weightlifting Championship, and a gold medal at the Senior Nationals Competitions in Orissa.
