Bajrang Punia in Indian Team

Asian champion Bajrang Punia is among the eight men’s freestyle wrestlers to have won the selection trails to represent India at the U-23 World Championships, scheduled to be held in Poland next month.

Bajrang also took part in the Senior World Championships in Paris in August but had returned empty-handed from there after going down in his repechage round in men’s 65kg freestyle.

Although Bajrang has already turned 23 earlier this year, according to the United World Wrestling (UWW) rules, he is eligible to take part in any Under-23 competition in the year 2017.
