CWG 2022: Ravi Dahiya, Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik in focus as India eye multiple wrestling medals

[ad_1]

There’s a big chance for India to win multiple medals in wrestling in the Commonwealth Games 2022! Last year, Bajrang Punia and Ravi Dahiya made the country proud by finishing on the podium in the Tokyo Olympics.

Wrestling has always been a sport where India have won multiple medals across various tournaments. It’s not expected to be any different this time around, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

While Punia and Dahiya will be looking to carry on from where they left off in Tokyo, the remaining nine wrestlers aren’t pushovers by any stretch of the imagination.

Vinesh Phogat is going through a rough patch, especially after her quarterfinal defeat in Tokyo where she went down to Belarus’s Vanesa Kaladzinskaya.

Phogat had revealed that she was in bad mental and physical shape. After the loss, Phogat mentioned that people considered her a “dead thing”.

However, as the CWG is concerned, the 27-year-old is one of India’s biggest hopes for a podium finish. She has won gold medals in the previous editions of the CWG and is eyeing her third. She also became the first Indian woman wrestler to win gold at both the Asian Games and CWG.

Apart from her, India also have Sakshi Malik. Back in 2016, she won the bronze medal and almost five years later, she won an international gold at the Bolat Turlykhanov Cup 2022 wrestling tournament in Almaty.

The 29-year-old won silver in 2014 followed by bronze in 2018 and will be looking to go one step up and clinch gold in Birmingham.

20-year-old Anshu Malik is set to make her debut in the CWG. Back in 2021, she became the first Indian wrestler to win silver at the World Championships in the women’s division. Malik has also won medals at the Individual World Cup and the Asian Championships.

India wrestling contingent for Commonwealth Games 2022

Pooja Gehlot – women’s 50kg, Vinesh Phogat – women’s 53kg, Anshu Malik – women’s 57kg, Sakshi Malik – women’s 62kg, Divya Kakran – women’s 68kg, Pooja Sihag – women’s 76kg, Ravi Kumar Dahiya – men’s 57kg, Bajrang Punia – men’s 65kg, Naveen – men’s 74kg, Deepak Punia – men’s 86kg, Mohit Grewal (125kg)
