Under 15 Asian Wrestling : Indian squad leaves for Chinese Taipei with bigger targets

By   - 20/11/2019

India’s Under 15 wrestling (Kushti) team has left for Chinese Taipei to participate in the Asian Wrestling Championships. The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has selected a 30-member squad to represent India at the Asian Under-15 Wrestling Championship to be held in Taichung City of Chinese Taipei from November 22-24. The trials for boys were conducted in Sonepat and girls in Lucknow by WFI.

Under 15 Asian Champion – Performance for India in Last edition

Following an inspiring show last year from both the boys and girls, India will be keen to continue its medal-winning spree. Last year, India finished third in freestyle after collecting a rich haul of eight medals with Aman (52kg) bringing home the solitary gold from Iran. The girls did an equally impressive job in Japan, bagging seven medals, highlighted by three gold medals from Pooja Rani (33kg), Komal (36kg) and Sweety (43kg).

The stellar display from the girls helped them log in 181 points to finish in second position behind the hosts Japan.

India’s target for the Under 23 Asian Wrestling Championships in Chinese Taipei

Unlike the last edition, the Asian Championship in Chinese Taipei will have both boys and girls competing simultaneously at the same tournament, where India will be banking on 2019 Cadet World Championships bronze medallists Udit Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Chahal (75kg), both of whom will be making their debut at the Asian U-15 Wrestling Championships.

“The boys have undergone rigorous training, where we have worked hard on every aspect of the game. We are confident of a good show and are hoping to bring back medals,” said National U-15 freestyle coach, Ranveer Singh Rahal.

Among the girls, the one to watch out for will be Komal (39kg), who clinched gold at the Cadet World Championships in 40kg earlier in the year.
