U-23 World Wrestling Championships results: Ankush Panghal wins silver; Mansi claims bronze medal

Pontevedra [Spain]: India’s medal rush at the U-23 World Wrestling Championships 2022 proceeded with Ankush Panghal winning silver in the ladies’s 50kg category and Mansi Ahlawat bagging a bronze in the women’s 59kg event in Pontevedra, Spain, on Thursday.
India have now gotten 5 medals, one silver and also 4 bronze, at the age-group globes in Cairo. The 3 other bronze medals were verified by Greco-Roman grapplers over the very first couple of days. After beating Snizhana Onufriieva of Ukraine by technological superiority in her very first round, Ankush Panghal, who ended up being the U20 Asian champion earlier this year in the 57kg, defeated Germany’s Ersel Lisa in a similar fashion in the quarter-finals.
The Indian wrestler appeared to be up for a much more stiff obstacle in the semis against Egypt’s Nada Medani Ashour Abdalla Mohamed but at some point added the former African champ to make the gold medal bout.
Up against Japan’s Yui Susaki, the Tokyo Olympic champion in the classification and also a world champ, Ankush had a hard time to make any kind of invasions and endured a defeat in the suit by fall in simply under two mins. The Japanese wrestler caught Ankush in a leg lock at an early stage as well as controlled the round from there on out.
The success also saw Yui Susaki come to be the initial wrestler in background to complete the wrestling Grand Slam – winning gold medals across all major competitions in the sport.
