Bajrang Punia’s Amazing

India’s star wrestler Bajrang Punia took less than two minutes to reach the quarterfinals of the 65kg category of the Commonwealth Games here on Friday. He registered an easy win in the opening round by knocking down Nauru’s Lowe Bingham. Defending champion Bajrang took a minute to grasp his opponent and then ended the match by suddenly slamming Bigham from a ‘clapping’ position.

Bingham did not realize this sudden bet and the Indian wrestler easily won. Bajrang will now face Olympic bronze medalist Jean Gayliane Joris Bandeau of Mauritius. Other Indians competing in the men’s freestyle event on Friday are Deepak Poonia (86kg) and Mohit Grewal (125kg). In the women’s event, Anshu Malik (57kg), Sakshi Malik (62kg) and Divya Kakran (68kg) will present the Indian challenge.

Deepak entered the next round by defeating Matthew Oxenholm of New Zealand. Apart from this, India expects medals from many more wrestlers today.
