New Delhi: Indian wrestler Priya Malik has won a gold medal at the ongoing World Cadet Wrestling Championship which is held in Hungary.

Priya grabbed the 73kg title with a 5-0 win over Belarus’ Kseniya Patapovich.

Another Indian, Varsha won the bronze medal in the 65kg category with a victory by fall against Turkey’s Duygu Gen.

India finished on top with 147 points, ahead of mighty USA (143) and formidable Russia (140).

The happy news of a woman bringing glory to the country comes just a day after Mirabai Chanu won silver yesterday at the Toky Olympics 2020.

Priya Malik’s gold medal win in Budapest is no mean feat as she has been striking gold on a regular basis. Priya Malik has won the gold medal in the 2019 edition of Khelo India in Pune and then went on to clinch gold in the very same year at the 17th School Games that were held in Delhi. Apart from these wins, Priya also won two more gold medals the following year i.e. 2020.

Her next two gold medal triumphs came at the National Cadet Championship in Patna as well as at the National School Games respectively.

Priya Malik has also become the first athlete to win a gold medal for India in World Wrestling Championship.
