Ace wrestler Priya Malik became only the second Indian grappler to the U20 World crown as she defeated Germany’s Laura Celive Kuehn in the 76 kg Gold medal match. The young Indian remained unperturbed by the cut above her eye as she cruised past the German with an authoritative 5-0 win in the summit clash. Meanwhile, Antim Panghal is on the doorstep of a historical milestone.
Priya was on a carnage at the Worlds. She did not concede a single point on her way to a fabulous Gold medal win. She registered a technical superiority 10-0 win in the semifinal over USA’s Kennedy Alexis Blades. Earlier, she outclassed AIN’s Aliaksandra Kazlova 11-0 in the quarterfinal after registering a 4-0 win over AIN’s Mariia Silina in the qualification round.
