Struggling Sakshi in World C’ship squad
New Delhi: Struggling wrestler Sakshi Malik has made it to the India’s World Championship squad without facing the trials as her opponent Sarita Mor withdrew from the 62kg clash due to an injury. The Olympic bronze medallist has been battling poor form since the start of the 2018 season. She won a bronze at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, but returned empty handed from the Asian Games in Jakarta. “Sakshi was to fight Sarita, but she has reported a knee injury so we are sending Sakshi to the Worlds,” said WFI Assistant Secretary Vinod Tomar. Sakshi had finished runner-up at a UWW ranking event in Belarus, where she lost the gold medal match 2-6 to Ajerbiajan’s Marianna Satsin on Sunday.
