Highlights

  • Parveen Rana the other Indian in the fray-stormed into the second round of the tournament after defeating Sue Change of Korea 12-1 in the men’s freestyle 92kg category.
  • Sumit Malik lost his 125kg qualification to Hungary’s Daniel Lageti by 0-2, who later lost in the quarterfinals.

Veteran Sushil Kumar’s return to the World Championships after eight years lasted for six minutes as he was defeated by Khadzhimurad Gadzhiyev of Azerbaijan on Friday.

Using all his experience, the wily Indian had raced to lead of 9-4 but conceded seven points to his opponent to lose his 74kg qualification round. The Azerbaijani wrestler lost to Ernest Burrough in the quarterfinal, resulting to Kumar’s ouster from the championship.

The two-time Olympic medallist has been striving for long as he had made a first-round exit from the 2018 Asian Games as well. He recently returned to the mat for the first time since his defeat in Jakarta when he competed at an event in Minsk, Belarus where he was at the fifth spot.

Sushil is the only Indian to have won the world title when he triumphed in 2010 in Moscow.

So far India has clinched two Olympic quotas through Bajrang Punia in the 65 kg and Ravia Dahiya in 57 kg qualifications respectively. Parveen won his first bout by technical superiority against Korea’s Change Su but later lost 0-8 to Ukraine’s Liubomyr Sagaliuk.
