    Great article Guest!  Man, I get choked up when I read about basically anything regarding the negative treatment of females in India.  I see it all of the time when I go back to visit family.  Whether she medals or not, she'll be a legend in India for many many years.  Here's an article for you about a 78 year old grandma sharpshooter in India that learned to shoot for the first time after the age of 60 and is beating the sh#t out of men in the process at their own game!

Here is a video of her from Yahoo.  She is sporting a nice cauliflower ear.
