India at Olympics: History of Indian Wrestling at Olympics

Wrestling was the first sport where India bagged its first individual medal post Independence. Khashaba Dadasaheb Jadhav won the bronze medal at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. It then took over 50 years for India to get another medal. Sushil Kumar ended the drought when he won India a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In the next Olympics, 2012 London Games, he won a silver medal while Yogeshwar Dutt bagged a bronze medal. In the 2016 Rio Games, Sakshi Malik also broke the stereotypes and became the first Indian women wrestler to win an Olympic medal.
