Rahul Aware wins bronze in 61 kg free-style category at World C’ship

Indian wrestler Rahul Aware has won a bronze medal in men’s 61 kilogram free-style category at the World Championship in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan today.

Rahul beat 17th seeded American Tyler Lee Graff 11-4 to ensure he finished on the podium.

This, however, was not an Olympic category and thus the bronze did not help Aware qualify for the Tokyo Games.

It was India’s fifth medal at this edition of the World Championships with a total haul of 1 silver and 4 bronzes. Earlier today, Deepak Punia  in men’s 86 kilogram category was forced to pull out of the final due to an injury and settled for silver.
