It started with a bang as Bajrang (65 KG) in freestyle category defeated Germany’s Alexander Semisorow by 6-2. Next, he faces Alan Gogaev of Russia
Later, Praveen Rana (74 KG) in freestyle category overpowered Kazakhstan’s Saiakbai Usupov by 4-2. The Indian grappler will be up against Jabrayil Hasanov of Azerbaijan.
Satywart kadian (97 kg) had a easy outing against his Chinese opponent. He defeated his opponent with the fall in mere 90 seconds.
However, in some disappointing news, Amit Dhankar (70 KG) in freestyle category lost his qualification match against Akzhurek Tanatarov by 2-9 of Kazakhstan.
