Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia are included in the Indian wrestling team for the world championships.


Numerous prominent Indian wrestlers were selected for the World Senior Championships, which will take place in Belgrade, Serbia, from September 10–18.

The Indian squad was chosen following selection trials held on Monday and Tuesday at SAI Training Centers in Lucknow and Sonepat.

The women’s team will be led by Tokyo Olympian Vinesh, who earlier this month at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham earned a hat-trick of gold medals, while the men’s freestyle team will include Olympic medalists Bajrang and Ravi Dahiya as well as 2019 World Championships silver medalist Deepak Punia.

Gold medalists from the Birmingham CWG, Bajrang (65 kg), Ravi Dahiya (57 kg), and Deepak Punia (86 kg), received exemptions from the trials.
