Sushil wins gold as Indians dominate Commonwealth wrestling

Posted by

Indian star Sushil Kumar made his return to international wrestling a memorable one, outclassing Akash Khullar of New Zealand in the final of the men’s 74 kilogram freestyle category to clinch gold at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship here on Sunday.
Sushil gave his opponent virtually no chance in the title clash, carving out an easy 6-0 victory. The double Olympic medallist, who is staging a comeback after around three years, thus clinched his fifth title at the Commonwealth level.
The Indians dominated most of the weight categories in the men’s freestyle with Bajrang (65kg), Jitender (79kg) and Sumit (125kg) also winning gold in their respective events.
The Indian women also imposed total domination in the competition, winning gold in each of the 10 weight categories.
