WON­DER GIRLS

India Today - - ASIAN GAMES -

Pincky Bal­hara was a ju­doka who re­cently turned to kurash, a Tur­kic wrestling style. The switch in­stantly paid off. The 19-year-old won a sil­ver, bet­ter­ing the bronze she won at the Asian Cham­pi­onships in Pune ear­lier this year. Mean­while, 21-year-old Swapna Bar­man made his­tory as she set per­sonal bests in three of the seven dis­ci­plines to be­come the first In­dian woman to win gold in the hep­tathlon.
