New Delhi, Feb 22, 2020-

Ravi Dahiya (57kg) on Saturday won the lone gold among the four Indian finalists on the penultimate day of the Asian Wrestling Championships at the KD Jadhav wrestling hall in New Delhi. Bajrang Punia (65kg), Gourav Baliyan (79kg) and Satywart Kadian (97kg) had to settle for silver, while Naveen (70kg) missed his shot at the Bronze.

Ravi outclassed Tajik grappler Vohidov Hikmatullo by technical superiority 10-0 in the 57kg title clash.

Japanese Otoguro Takuto outclassed Bajrang Punia 10-2 in the gold medal bout of the 65kg category while 2019 Asian Championships bronze medallist Satywart Kadian won silver by beating two-time Under-23 World champion and UWW U23 Wrestler of the year 2019 Iranian Goleij Mojtaba Mohammadshafie. The 97kg category saw Kadian lose 0-10 to his Iranian opponent.

Gourav Baliyan (79kg), who took part in his first Asian Wrestling Championship on Saturday, showed promise as he narrowly went down to an experienced Kyrgyz Budazhapov Arsalan 5-7 to settle for a silver medal.

Speaking after the game, Gourav said, “My aim was to win gold. My opponent is a good wrestler and his last move worked out. Seven seconds was too less to get another point”.

Naveen (70kg) lost out on a bronze medal going down 12-1 to Ashirov Meirzhan of Kazakhstan.  (Agency)
