CWG 2022: Indian Wrestlers Deepak, Sakshi, Bajrang Win Gold

Indian grappler Deepak Punia won Gold medal in the Men’s Freestyle 86kg category in the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 after defeating Pakistan’s Muhammad Inam at the Coventry Arena Wrestling Mat B on Friday.

Earlier in the day, veteran Indian wrestlers Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik too bagged Gold in their weight category, raising the Indian ranking to fifth place in the total medal tally.

Punia won the gold medal match 3-0. This was India’s third wrestling gold at the Commonwealth Games 2022. The grappler took 2-0 lead in the first period and all the pressure was on the Punia’s opponent heading into the last three minutes.

Punia was in good form in this match. In the final three minutes, he managed to hold his own and he kept his opponent at bay to walk away with the gold.

The Pakistani wrestler struggled to find a way through Punia’s strong defence and went home without scoring a point.

Earlier, star Indian wrestler Bajrang Punia clinched a gold medal for India after winning the final against Canada’s Lachlan Mcneil in the men’s 65 kg.

Anshu Malik had to settle for the silver medal in the women’s 57kg freestyle wrestling after losing to Odunayo Folasade Adekuoroye of Nigeria.

Commonwealth Games 2022 started in Birmingham on July 28 and will go on till August 8. (ANI)
