Indian Greco-Roman wrestlers losing streak continues at Worlds

New Delhi, Sep 15 (UNI) India’s Greco-Roman grapplers have struggled to make a mark at this prestigious event but Asian Championships silver medallist Gurpreet Singh (77kg) will look to change all that when he takes on Austria’s Michael Wagner in the qualifying rounds on Monday at the World Senior Wrestling Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.
The winner will progress into the round of 32.
There are two more Indians in the fray. In 60kg, Manish, will will lock horns with Finland’s Lauri Johannes Maehoenen while in 130 kg, Naveen will vie for a berth in the round of 16 when he meets Cuba’s Oscar Pino Hinds in the qualifying stages.
On Sunday in (97kg) Ravi became the first Indian to win a bout when he beat Chinese Taipei's Cheng Hao Chen 5-0.
His run was, however, cut short by Czech Republic's Artur Omarov in the Round of 16 when the latter proved too strong for him in a 7-0 verdict.
In 67kg, Manish lost to Bulgaria's Devvid Tihomirov Dimitrov by Technical Superiority after winning a solitary point while Sunil Kumar succumbed to a 0-6 defeat to US Joseph Patrick Rau in 87kg.
On the opening day of the championships, none of the Indian Greco-Roman wrestlers managed to win a round. Asian Championship silver medallist Harpreet Singh (82kg), Sagar (63kg), and Manjeet (55kg) went down in their opening bouts without registering a single point whereas Yogesh (72kg) gave his all before suffering a narrow defeat.
