Scripting history in the realm of Indian Sports and Athletics, Navjot Kaur wrestled her way to grab a gold medal for India during the Asian Championships in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan on Friday.

The 28-year-old clinched the gold medal in the women’s 65kg freestyle category, after outclassing Japan’s Miya Imai in a one-sided final bout through a stupendous 9-1 victory.

With an out and out dominating performance in the ring, Navjot maintained an impressive form throughout all the bouts.

However, it was her spectacular finish towards the final one that demarcated the top slot for the wrestler.

Navjot had earlier made waves in the international sports fraternity when she had won a silver medal at the Asian Championships in 2013 and a bronze during the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Besides being the first ever gold won by an Indian woman wrestler, the achievement also marks the first gold won by the Indian contingent at the Asian Championships.

It looks like 2018 has ignited the best form amidst Indian women wrestlers, who are turning heads in the international arena with their phenomenal form and performance.

Alongside Navjot, Olympian Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat and Sangeeta kept the tricolour high by bagging bronze, silver and bronze medals in 62kg, 50kg and 59kg freestyle wrestling categories, respectively.
