Ravi Malik was the only saving grace for the Indian Greco Roman contingent at the junior world championship as he on Saturday reached the 82kg bronze medal play-off while other wrestlers from the country struggled to win even one round here.
Malik began with a 6-0 win over Estonia’s Robin Uspenski and followed that up with a 18-9 victory over Kyrgyzstan’s Zhenish Humnabekov, who got three cautions in the quarter-final bout. Malik though could not do much against Armenia’s Karen Khachatryan in the semi-final, which he lost by technical superiority. Narinder Cheema (97kg) was only the second Indian who managed to win two bouts and he got the reward by getting into the competition through the repechage round.
