Jaipur, February 4

Asian Games gold medallist Vinesh Phogat clinched the 55kg gold medal in the Senior National Wrestling Championships being organised by the IOA-constituted ad-hoc committee.

Vinesh, representing Railways (RSPB), showcased her experience by defeating Jyoti from Madhya Pradesh 4-0 despite the ace grappler competing in a higher weight category. The 29-year-old had won the 2018 Asian Games gold in 50kg category, while her title triumph at the 2022 Commonwealth Games had come in the 53kg category.

In another keen contest, 2021 World Championships silver medallist Anshu Malik of Haryana defeated 2020 Asian Championships gold medallist Sarita Mor (Railways) 8-3 in the 59kg category.

Haryana’s women dominated the proceedings, taking the top spot with 189 points and pushing powerhouse RSPB to the second spot with 187 points.

In the Greco-Roman section, RSPB emerged overall winners with 208 points, followed by Services (127 points) and Maharashtra (113 points). The last day of the competition will see the men’s freestyle events. — PTI
