New Delhi: Rio Olympian Sandeep Tomar and Amit Dhankar were among the gold medal winners in their respective weight categories at the ongoing Senior (men's and women's) National Wrestling championship at Gonda, Uttar Pradesh.

The bout between Utkarsh Kale and London Olympian Amit Kumar in men's 57kg freestyle category proved to be the highlight of the day, in which Kale stunned the more experienced Amit in the semifinals to set up a summit clash with Sandeep Tomar.
