Brazilian athlete in viral video falsely identified as Indias Capt. Preeti Choudhary

Hyderabad: A video of a woman showing her amazing gymnastic skills is doing the rounds of social media with the claim that the woman in the video is India's Captain Preeti Choudhary. In the top corner of the viral video, we can see a photo of Captain Preeti Choudhary.

Captain Preeti Choudhary of the Indian Army's Air Defence regiment commanded the upgraded Schilika anti-aircraft weapon system at the 2021 Republic Day parade. She was the only female participant from the Indian Army.

Fact Check

NewsMeter performed a reverse image search which led us to the Instagram account of Kiran Dembla who had uploaded the same video and tagged @savinagabriella.

We then searched Instagram for 'Savinagabriella' and found her page. She had posted the viral video on 19 May 2021 with the caption, "Just for you to feel the vibe and energy of this place. I feel at home. #jampa #streetworkout #reelsinstagram." From this, it is evident that the video is of Savina Gabriella.

We ran a keyword search and found Gabriella's videos on the YouTube channel 'Calisthenics Worldwide'.


Savina Gabriella is a calisthenics trainer and athlete from São Paulo in Brazil.

It is evident that the woman in the video is Savina Gabriella from Brazil and not Captain Preeti Choudhary from India. Hence, the claim is false.
