Indian star wrestler Bajrang Punia said he was trying to get back to his best attacking level after defending his 65kg Commonwealth Games title here on Friday. Tokyo Olympic bronze medallist Pakistani Iran defeated Canada’s Lachlan McNeil 9-2 in the final. “Played really well and the opponents were great. I was injured (knee) during the Olympics. The plan is to gradually get back to where I was. I’ll work with the coach and try to address my weaknesses going forward, the World Championship is next for me. target,” Bajrang said.

The 28-year-old, who has deliberately attempted more than his recent offense, said: “After the injury I said you’d see Bajrang in 2018, I’m just trying.” Full of compliments.

“When it comes to fitness, he’s the best in the world. I for him especially, but he was better on the day. He showed me where I still have to work. Happy with the silver medal though. It’s been a long time. for a while,” McNeill said.

In her CWG debut, young wrestler Anshu had to accept silver after a crushing defeat to defending 57kg champion Nigeria’s Odunayo Folasade.

Anshu, who turned 21 on Friday, was in after losing his final game.

“I gave it my all on the mat. The elbow injury I had before I came here meant I couldn’t get enough upper body strength. If I had another month, the outcome of that game would have been different.” Not much, helping the Nigerian lead 4-0.

“Maybe I can attack more in the first round like I did in the second round,” said the 2021 World Championship silver medalist.
