Athletic Kaurs

Harwant Kaur is from Punjab and will be competing in the discus throw. It seems that she has recently moved to Australia after a career in the Punjab Police with only dismal prospects. She had previously finished 13th at the Athens Olympics in 2004.Harwant_Kaur.jpg

The women’s discus qualifying round is set to begin on Day 7 (Friday, August 15, 2008)

Mandeep Kaur seems to be from Punjab. She is competing in the Womens 400m race as well as in the womens 4400m relay. I could not find a picture or any other information.

The 400m race qualifying rounds begin on Day 8 (Saturday, August 16, 2008) and the 4x400m relay will begin on Day 14 (Friday, August 22, 2008)

Manjit Kaur from Punjab will be competing in the Womens 400m race. She has recently been training in ManjeetKaur.jpgCalifornia under coach Cedric Hill. Manjit recently won gold in the Womens 4400m relay and a silver in the individual 400m at the 2006 Doha Asian Games. She also won a silver at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. You can see her kara proudly in the picture. (and look at those guns! now that is a Kaur!)
