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.
