2012 London Olympics: Celebrations at Yogeshwar`s home over medalChandigarh: With wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt putting up a stunning performance to win a bronze medal in the London Olympics, celebrations broke out in his village in Haryana`s Sonipat district.

The Haryana government has announced a reward of Rs.1 crore for the 29-year-old wrestler who came from behind and won three wrestling matches in a span of 45 minutes to give India its fifth medal in the London Olympics. Yogeshwar won the bronze in 60-kg freestyle category.

The wrestler`s family members and fellow villagers in Bhianswal village burst firecrackers and danced till Saturday night after he won the bronze.

Congratulating the wrestler, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said Yogeshwar was the third from Haryana after shooter Gagan Narang and badminton star Saina Nehwal to win medals in London.

Though Saina and Narang do not live in Haryana, they have also been rewarded Rs.1 crore each by the Haryana government since they have their family roots in the state.
