XtraTime Web Desk: Glory in wrestling as Vinesh Phogat bags the gold in women’s 50kg freestyle after beating Canada’s Jessica MacDonald 13-3 (via technical superiority) in her final Nordic system bout. On the flip side, Indian wrestler Sumit Malik too won a Gold medal in wrestling.

Indian wrestler Sumit Malik claimed the gold medal in the men’s freestyle 125 kg after his opponent Nigeria’s Sinivie Boltic was ruled out of the final due to an injury at the 21st Commonwealth Games, in Gold Coast on Saturday.
 
Sumit defeated Pakistan’s Tayab Raza 10-4 in a dramatic bout.
 
It turned out to be an pulsating contest as Sumit was leading early on but Raza came back to reduce the deficit to 2-3 after attacking the Indian’s legs.
 
However, Sumit didn’t allow his rival to dominate as he displayed incredible athleticism, hopping around the mat to avoid stepping outside the bound after Raza once again had grabbed his leg. The Indian counterattacked and eventually won comfortably with a big margin.
