Babita Phogat, who bagged a gold medal in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games 2014, said that Vinesh was like a lioness in the ring during the wrestling match. She said that she expected that Vinesh would win a medal in the Rio Olympics as well, but since she suffered an injury, she could not compete against her Chinese opponent.
When Vinesh got a chance to compete in the Asian Games, she made India proud by clinching a gold in women's 50 kg freestyle category. With this win, Vinesh became the first woman to win a gold medal in wrestling for India at the Asian Games.
In an exclusive interview with MyNation, this is what Vinesh’s cousin and champion wrestler Babita Phogat had to say about her success.
