Wrestler Divya Kakran goes beyond Bronze to get gold
Indian women grapplers started their campaign on a golden note in the ongoing Asian Wrestling Championships with four out of five women grapplers winning medals. Divya Kakran won all her four bouts against Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, and Japan in the 68 kg category. Her final bout against Naruha Matsuyuki of Japan was the closest one. The field was depleted due to the absence of Chinese wrestlers. Divya is only the second Indian woman grappler after Navjot Kaur to win a gold at the Asian Championships. Navjot Kaur won the gold in 2018.
