India’s Priya Malik won the gold medal in the World Cadet Wrestling Championships in Budapest, Hungary on Sunday thrashing Kseniya Patapovich 5-0 of Belarus in the 73-kg weight category.
Priya Malik has given the country another reason to smile as, on Saturday, weightlifter Mirabai Chanu won a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
Priya Malik had also won the gold medal in the 2019 edition of Khelo India in Pune and she then went on to clinch gold at the 17th School Games held in Delhi.
Earlier Tannu had won the title in the 43kg category.
While a Union minister posted a congratulatory message for the wrestler, many including Bollywood actors, politicians mistook Priya for winning the ‘Olympic’ medal and posted congratulatory messages on social media.
