Tokyo Olympics 2020: Wrestler Ravi Kumar Dahiya Enter Finals

 - Sakshi Post

In the men's freestyle wrestling 57kg category, India was assured of at least a silver medal as Ravi Kumar Dahiya staged a spectacular comeback against Kazakhstan's Nurislam Sanayev to reach the final.

The match got off to a tense start, with both wrestlers scoring points in the first few minutes of the first round. Sanayev, on the other hand, came close to winning the match by scoring 8 points in succession by twisting the Indian wrestler around by grasping his legs.

Ravi Kumar, on the other hand, produced a tremendous comeback, cutting the Kazakh wrestler's lead to 5-9 and then pinning him down with a superb maneuver to win the battle 'by fall.'
