Wrestling News : Vinesh Phogat sets mat on fire!

Sending out a warning to her rivals ahead of the Asian Games, Indian wrestler Vinesh Phogat grabbed a gold at the Spanish Grand Prix in Madrid, conceding just one point in five bouts en route the dominating title victory. The 23-year-old Vinesh outclassed Canada’s Natasha Fox 10-0 in the final to claim her second consecutive gold. She had won a gold at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in the 50kg category. Vinesh began her campaign in a dominating fashion by beating Mariana Diaz on technical superiority and then thumped Erin Golston 12-1. Next up for her was Valeria Chepsarakova, whom she beat 5-0. The semifinal against Jessi Macdonald also turned out to be a lop-sided affair with Vinesh winning 10-0 on technical superiority. The script remained unchanged in the final as Natasha proved no match to Vinesh, who again won 10-0. It was the last tournament for Vinesh before the Asian Games, beginning August 18 in Jakarta and Palembang.
