The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has announced a 30-member squad for the UWW Under-23 World Championships 2019, starting in Budapest, Hungary from October. As announced earlier by the WFI, the performance at the recently-held Tata Motors U23 National Championships at Shirdi has been considered for selecting the squad.
India will be gunning to improve their performance in the last U-23 World Championships 2018, when they could muster only one medal in Bucharest, Romania. Ravi Kumar Dahiya had grabbed the silver medal in the 57kg category and went on to prove his mettle even in the Senior World Championships this year by claiming bronze and confirming the 57kg freestyle category berth at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, says a WFI Press release.
On the current form of the wrestlers, the WFI is expecting a better performance at the World Championships.
WFI has also declared that preparatory camp for the U-23 World Championship will start from Monday for both girls and boys in Lucknow and Sonepat, respectively. The Indian squad will leave for Budapest on October 26.
The entire action from the UWW U-23 World Championships 2019 will be streamed live and exclusive on www.wrestlingtv.in, India’s one-stop destination for wrestling news.
The latest updates will also be available on WrestlignTV’s social media handles – @Wrestlingtvindia/ (Facebook), @wrestlingtvIND (Twitter) and @wrestlingtv.in (Instagram).
