Bajrang Punia marched on to the semi-final of the 65 kg Freestyle event after his second win of the day on technical superiority. The Commonwealth Games gold medallist won 12-2 against Tajikistan Fayziev. Punia’s leg hold over his opponent was superb, and he only seemed to have gained in confidence since his opening bout when he had to stage a comeback.

Punia won a silver at the last Asian Games, and is now one win away from a medal for India. Mentored by Olympic bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt, Punia has had a superb 2018 with a hat-trick of gold medals in his kitty already.

Meanwhile, Sandeep Tomar lost in his 57kg category quarterfinal against Iran’s Reza Atrinagharchi. Tomar made a tremendous comeback after trailing 0-6 in the opening round. But Reza’s counterattack in the second was too good as he won four points on the trot to win the bout 15-9.

Pawan Saroha, meanwhile, made it to the quarter final after winning his opening bout 8-0 in the 86 kg Free Style event.
