Gama Pehlwan

Ghulam Mohammad Baksh Butt was widely regarded as one of the best wrestlers of all time and earned the name 'The Great Gama' after going undefeated throughout his international matches.

Born in Jabbowal village in Punjab's Amritsar district, Gama won several titles during his career, including the Indian edition of the World Heavyweight Championship (1910).

Gama Pehalwan has been a household name in India for decades, often used when commenting on a person's strengths.

According to the Google Doodle blog, when Gama Pehelwan was 10 years old, her workout routine consisted of 500 lunges and 500 pushups when she was only 10 years old.

Gama Pehalwan spent the rest of his days until his death in 1960 in Lahore, which became part of Pakistan after partition.

The Prince of Wales presented a silver mace to Gama Pehalwan during his visit to India to honor the great wrestler.

"Gamma's legacy continues to inspire modern-day fighters.

Even Bruce Lee is a well-known fan and incorporates aspects of Gamma's conditioning into his training routine!" said the Google Doodle blog.
