2021 Oslo World Wrestling Championships
The first major tournament after the Olympics for any sport usually does not involve world star athletes. India will be missed by its Olympians such as Ravi Dahiya, Bajrang Punia, Deepka Punia and Vinesh Phogat. But it’s also an opportunity for young people and lesser-known wrestlers to give their all. The total strength of the contingent is well over 25. There are some notable names such as Gourav Baliyan, Sangeeta Phogat and Satyawart Kadiyan. We are looking at all the participants and their weight classes for the next world championships.
