Late yesterday, Pooja Dhanda bagged women’s 57 kg bronze with a 10-7 verdict over Grace Bullen of Norway. She thus became only the fourth Indian women grapplers after Alka Tomar, Geeta Phogat and Babita Phogat to win a UWW World Championship medal.

Earlier, Bajrang Punia had created a history for India by securing his second World Championship medal – a silver to add to the bronze he had won in the previous edition of the UWW World Championship.
