Birmingham [UK], August 7 (ANI): Following the gold medal victory in wrestling, Ravi Kumar Dahiya said that he will try to win a gold medal for India in the world championship.

Indian grappler Ravi Kumar Dahiya won the gold medal in the Men's Freestyle 57kg category in the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022.

He defeated Ebikewenimo Welson of Nigeria at the Coventry Arena Wrestling Mat B on Saturday. Dahiya won India's tenth gold medal at the CWG 2022.

"I came here with the goal of winning a gold medal for the country and achieved it. My next target is World Championship and I will try to win a gold medal for the country there also," Ravi Dahiya told ANI.

Dahiya won the gold medal match on technical superiority with 10-0 margin. The match lasted two minutes and 16 seconds.

The Indian wrestler was extremely dominant in the first period and did not let his opponent score. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics silver medallist was at the top of his game in the final as he took 8-0 lead in the first period by pinning and rolling his opponent out of the ring.

So far, Indian athletes have won 40 medals, 13 golds, 11 silvers and 16 bronze, at the Commonwealth Games 2022. (ANI)
