Karenjeet is the winner of 3 Gold and 2 Silver Commonwealth Powerlifting medals and has represented Great Britain at the World and European Championships. She also holds the Guinness World Record for the ‘Most Bodyweight Squats in a minute’.
Karenjeet’s is now set to take on contenders at the Sheffield Utilita Arena as the Gladiator Athena in the BBC One and iPlayer gameshow.
She says: “I represent all those from diverse and minority backgrounds, especially women, that have ever been denied the opportunity to pursue their dreams in sport. I hope I can be a role model and show the levels a female can achieve, if she is given the opportunity to follow her passion and given the wings to fly!”
We look forward to seeing Karenjeet on our screens soon!

Jess was an exceptional sportsperson during her time at Myton, competing in every school team and linked to both Rugby and Football Academies.
Jess wants girls to realise that professional football is an option and for them “to have that ambition and dream and see that it can become a reality.”
Jess is an inspiration to young people and demonstrates all that can be achieved through hard work and dedication.
