3 Gold, 1 Silver: Women Wrestlers Are Flying The Indian Flag High At Asian Wrestling C'ships

The unwavering spirit, determination, and resilience was on full display as India's women wrestlers stole the show at Asian Championships - winning four medals, biggest-ever haul on a single day of the competition.

On a monumental day, the women grapplers showcased a true fighting spirit to lead India to three gold medal wins and a silver. Divya Kakran (68kg), Sarita Mor (59kg) and Pinki (55kg) were the pick of the bunch, showing a great deal of maturity and character to clinch their first ever gold each in women's freestyle.

It could have very well been four gold medals, but unfortunately Nirmala Devi lost her 50kg title clash 2-3 against Japan’s Igarashi Miho, in a keenly-contested bout.

Divya Kakran started the gold rush for the hosts. She won all four of her bouts by fall, including the final against reigning world junior champion, Japan’s Matsuyuki Naruha.

Sarita, competing in her first Asian event since winning a silver in 2017 in 58kg, won her first two bouts by technical superiority against Madina Bakbergenova (Kazakhstan) and Nazira MarsbekKyzy (Kyrgyzstan) before winning 10-3 against Japan's Yuumi Kon. She edged out Mongolia's Battseteg Atlantsetseg 3-2 in the final. 

Sarita managed a push-out point to win her first gold at this event after the scores were tied.

Pinki, competing at senior Asian for the first time, began by beating Uzbekistan's Shokida Akhmedova by fall but lost the next bout to Japan's Kana Higashikawa. She won her semifinal against Marina Zuyeva 6-0 and beat Mongolia's Dulguun Bolormaa 2-1 to grab the gold. 

All the points scored in the final were on passivity. 

Nirmala beat Mongolia's Munkhnar Byambasuren 6-4 and Uzbeskitan's Dauletbike Yakhshimuratova by technical superiority but lost the final 2-3 to Japan's Miho Igarashi.
