Poor start by Indian Greco wrestlers at World C'ships

Saturday - September 14, 2019 2:18 pm , Category : SPORTS
Nur-Sultan (Kazakhstan), Sep 14 (IANS) India didn't have a great start at the World Wrestling Championships which began in Nur-Sultan in Kazakhstan as none of the four Greco Roman wrestlers, who were in action on Saturday, were able to win their respective matches.
Competing in non-Olympic categories, Harpeet Singh (82kg), Sagar (63kg), and Manjeet (55kg) could not even score a single point in their respective bouts.
Only Yogesh, in the 72kg weight category, resisted his American rival Raymond Anthony Bunker III before suffering a narrow 5-6 defeat.
In the 82kg category, Asian Championship silver medallist Harpreet lost 0-7 to Petr Novak without giving any fight to his Czech opponent.
In the 55kg category, Manjeet lost to reigning World Champion Azizli by technical superiority. The fifth-seeded Indian gave his all but couldn't succeed in the pre-quarterfinals.
In the 63kg category, Sagar didn't seem to be in control of the game and lost 0-9 to local wrestler A. Kebispayev.
The Indian wrestlers can still be in contention for bronze medals via repechage if their winners reach the title clash.
