Deepak eyes his­toric gold in wrestling

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

Deepak Pu­nia placed him­self in line for the se­nior wrestling world ti­tle by reach­ing the 86kg fi­nal in the world cham­pi­onships, apart from book­ing his Tokyo Olympics quota, in Kaza­khstan on Satur­day. At 20, he also be­came the youngest wrestler to reach the fi­nal of the tour­na­ment.

How­ever, it was heart­break for boxer Amit Pang­hal (23), who lost in the world cham­pi­onships fi­nal on Satur­day. He, though, be­came the first In­dian pugilist to win a sil­ver in the men’s world cham­pi­onships.
