Tokyo Olympics: Young Indian wrestler Priya Malik did India proud by winning gold at the ongoing World Cadet Wrestling Championships in Budapest, Hungary, on Sunday but it’s not very helpful with the biggest sporting event in the world.

Indian cricketer Ishant Sharma was one of many people, who confused Priya’s achievement with that of weightlifter Mirabai Chanu on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Priya Malik won the women’s 73 kg weight category gold medal by getting the better of Belarus wrestler Kseniya Patapovich 5-0 in the final.

Priya Malik’s ‘golden’ triumph comes a day after the champion weightlifter Mirabai Chanu had clinched silver in the women’s 49kg category in Tokyo Olympics.
