Asian countries have assured support and participation of their grapplers in the upcoming Pro Wrestling League, to be organised by India, and complimented the national federation for coming up with an "unique" tournament.
Narsingh Pancham Yadav on Sunday secured an Olympic quota place for India after bagging a bronze medal in the Men's 74kg Freestyle category, giving the country a reason to cheer at the World Wrestling Championship here.
Rising India wrestler Bajrang narrowly missed out on a third-place finish, going down in the bronze medal play-off round in men's 61kg Freestyle category even as other Indians continued to disappoint at the World Championship here.
In the absence of India's best bet Yogeshwar Dutt, who pulled out at the last minute due to an injury, India once again faltered in the World Championship with all four women wrestlers bowing out of the event in the initial stages of their respective categories here.
India did not have an ideal start to their campaign at the World Championship as all three wrestlers competing on day one of the tournament failed to progress beyond the pre-quarterfinal stage in the Greco-Roman event here.
With an aim to bag as many Olympic quota places as possible, star grappler Yogeshwar Dutt will spearhead the Indian attack even as all eyes will be on Narsingh Yadav's performance in the absence of a more fancied Sushil Kumar at the World Wrestling Championship here.
