PONTEVEDRA (Spain): Freestyle wrestler Aman grabbed India’s first gold medal of the ongoing edition of the U-23 World Championship when he outplayed Turkey’s Ahmet Duman in the 57kg title clash on Saturday.
Aman scored all his points in the second period while his opponent got his points with a couple of two-pointers in each period.
It is Aman’s fourth medal this season, having won a gold in Almaty, silver at Dan Kolov and a bronze at Yasar Dogu.
India signed off with six medals with only nine wrestlers taking the mat.
India cherished its best ever result in Greco Roman style with three wrestlers winning medals — all bronze.
The 21 others selected in the Indian squad could not compete as their visa applications were rejected by the embassy of Spain.
