Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Naina Arora

Haryana’s beloved daugh­ter, Rio Olympics bronze medal­list wrestler Sak­shi Ma­lik, wed wrestler Satyawart Ka­dian on Sun­day at Ro­htak’s Nan­dal Bhawan.

Guests were greeted by images and videos of Sak­shi’s tri­umphs – footage of her Rio Olympics mo­ment was played on a large LCD screen placed at the en­trance. Satyawart him­self has an il­lus­tri­ous wrestling lin­eage, be­ing the son of Ar­juna Awardee wrestler Satya­van Ka­dian.

For the proud par­ents of the bride and the bride­groom, this union means a stronger com­mon re­solve to win more medals. The bride’s father Sukhbir Ma­lik said, “They met through wrestling com­pe­ti­tions. It’s a love-cumarranged mar­riage. Hum yehi umeed karte hai ki shaadi hone ke baad mein zy­daa mehnat karenge bachhe.”
