Sakshi books berth for World Wrestling C'ship

New Delhi:  Rio Olympics medallist Sakshi Malik has booked her berth in the Indian squad for the upcoming World Wrestling Championship slated to begin in Paris from August 21-27.
Sakshi, who created history by bagging bronze at Rio, became the fourth Indian wrestler and the first Indian women wrestler to achieve this feat.
Sakshi who previously fought under 58 kg category has switched to 60 kg category which will be a challenge for her when she takes part in the World Wrestling Championship in Paris next month.
After Rio feat, Sakshi jumped straight to Pro-Wrestling League, but fought with the Indian wrestlers only.
Sakshi, part of Delhi's Sultan team, was to fight in a league match with Olympics bronze medallist Marwah Amri of Tunisia, but eventually pulled out due to fever.
