World Wrestling Championship
In men’s freestyle, bronze medalist of the 2013 Budapest edition, Bajrang would be eyeing a gold this time around with his confidence high after finishing on top of the podium at the Asian Championship.
Bajrang, who had bagged a bronze at Budapest in 60kg freestyle, has now climbed up a division to 65kg. However, he looked pretty comfortable in his new weight division as he fought Asia’s best wrestlers in this category a few months ago to emerge victorious.
Although he ensured a berth at the World Championship just about 10 days ago, Bajrang proved far superior when he thrashed Rahul Mann 10-0 at a special selection trial held here on August 12.
Besides Bajrang, Amit kumar (70 kg), Parveen Rana (74 kg) & Satywart kadian will make their participation today.
