Wrestling News: Sakshi Malik’s dream of Tokyo Olympics shattered!

Young Sonam Malik downed Sakshi Malik for the second time in a row, this time by pinning the Olympic medallist to make it to the Indian team for next month’s Olympic Qualifiers in Lucknow proving her mettle yet again. Asked to re-appear in trials after a not-so-strong performance at the Rome Ranking series event and the recently-concluded Asian Championships, the 18-year-old tore apart the challenge of established seniors in the 62kg competition. She first got past Radhika and then caring little for reputation, Sonam beat the Asian Championship 59kg gold medallist Sarita Mor (3-1) in the semi-finals before winning by fall against Rio Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi in the final.
