Dolly’s parents decided to train her like their late son Cherukuri Lenin, an international archer, who died in a road accident shortly after the Commonwealth Games in 2010.Her father also bought her arrows specially made out of carbon when she was first learning the sport to ensure she could carry them. Dolly’s father’s dream for her is to join the Indian team by 2020, when she’ll be just 9 years old.
