Bajrang Punia is regarded as one of the best grapplers in India. He is slated to be one of India's biggest medal prospects at the Olympics 2021. Although Punia is making his Olympic debut, he will be one of the Indians to watch out for.

Punia recently faced an injury scare at the Ali Aliyev memorial wrestling event in Russia, but it looks like all is fine with the grappler now.

The Indian has multiple world championship medals, an Asian Games gold medal, and several other triumphs to his name. He has everything to show on his resume, but an Olympic medal would help him be in the conversation as one of the top grapplers in the world.

Punia will have the honor of leading the Indian team's charge at the closing ceremony of the Olympics. He will be hoping that he can also help add to the medal tally when he leads the contingent on August 8.
