Sajan Bhanwal finally took the all important step to the highest podium as he won his first international Gold Medal. Previously, Sajan Bhanwal had won 4 medals, all of them Bronze.
“It’s a great feeling to win the gold medal in front of the home crowd. Everyone in the family has been waiting for this for a long time. They always asked me when I will stop winning bronze medals and finally get a gold. With so many close friends and my coach Rajveer Chikkara in the stands, it was a great day for me. So many people are congratulating me and my father,” the 20-year-old wrestler says.
India coach Naresh Kumar said that Sajan has a strong Greco Roman basics. “During age-group wrestling in India, we do not focus much on stance and base of a Greco-Roman wrestler. But Sajan has a great stance which helps him to get a stable position on the mat. The Iran wrestler have a great stance as well but Sajan matched him today,” Naresh said
