Indian wrestler Ravi Dahiya won silver medal for the country
Freestyle wrestler Ravi Kumar Dahiya, who won India’s second silver medal in Tokyo Olympics, may have missed a step before creating history by winning gold, but Ravi has made history with silver too. Earlier, pictures and videos of Ravi qualifying for the final in men’s 57kg category have gone viral on social media, showing the spirit with which Ravi was playing during the match. The player kept biting Ravi with his teeth for a long time but the Indian player stood firm till the end. In the semi-final match, when 23-year-old Dahiya was trailing 7-9 against his rival Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan, he ensured his victory through a victory by-fall. Although during this time, Kazakhstan wrestler Ravi Dahiya continued to bite his hand to remove him, but even after this, this Indian player did not give up and came only after winning the match.
Now after the video and picture of this incident surfaced, former cricketer Virender Sehwag expressed his disappointment over this incident and said that it is wrong, when you could not compete, you got bitten. But after that he could not suppress the enthusiasm of our Ravi Dahiya. While the entire nation was engulfed in celebration with Ravi Dahiya’s victory, it was learned after the match that Sanayev was seen biting the Indian wrestler’s arm during the final moments of the match. In the photo, a deep bite mark has been revealed in his right arm. At the same time, there is a lot of displeasure among the fans over the handiwork of the Kazakhstani wrestler.
How unfair is this , couldn’t hit our #RaviDahiya ‘s spirit, so bit his hand. Disgraceful Kazakh looser Nurislam Sanayev.

Talking about today’s match, Indian wrestler Ravi Dahiya had to be content with the silver medal. In the final match of 57kg freestyle wrestling, he was defeated 7-4 by Russian wrestler Zur Uguev. With this, India’s dream of winning a gold medal in wrestling has remained unfulfilled. India had earlier won a total of 5 medals in wrestling but had never been successful in winning gold. Today this dream has again remained unfulfilled with the defeat of Ravi Dahiya.
