Sushil Kumar made a great comeback on the international stage by winning a gold medal at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championships.
Returning to international wrestling after more than three years, Sushil defeated New Zealand Akash Khullar’s via a pinfall in the final of the 74kg freestyle category to clinch the yellow metal.
It was his first medal in international wrestling since his gold medal in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Meanwhile Sakshi Malik also won a gold by beating New Zealand’s Tayla Tuahine Ford in the 62kg category. She won the bout 13-2.
