Sushil Kumar Wins

Sushil Kumar won the bronze medal in men’s 66kg freestyle category at the Beijing Olympics here on Wednesday

Sushil’s campaign seemed nearly over when he lost his first round battle against eventual silver medallist Andriy Stadnik but repechage provided him a ray of hope and the Indian proved simply irresistible as he beat three grapplers on the trot to win the bronze.

Sushil became the second Indian wrestler after K D Jadhav who won a bronze in the 1952 Helsinki Games to win an Olympic medal.
