Priya Malik of India created history in women’s wrestling by winning the 2023 U20 World Championships.
Priya, a former World Cadet champion, took home the gold in the women’s 76kg division, becoming just the second Indian woman wrestler to do so. P

Priya is 18-year-old from Nidani village in the Jind region of Haryana, defeated Laura Celine Kuehn of Germany 6-0 on points in the women’s 76 kg final in Amman. With strong defence and a variety of attacks, Priya, the two-time U17 world champion, was unquestionably a better Priya than she had been in 2022.

Savita, who won the under-17 World Championship earlier this month in Istanbul, displayed a magnificent game to outclass Venezuela’s Astrid Paola Montero Chirinos 10-0 by technical superiority with 2:40 minutes to spare.

Reena (57kg) and Harshita (72kg) won bronze medals. Indian women topped the medal table with three gold, one silver, and three bronze medals. Previously, Mohit Kumar (freestyle 61kg) had won two gold medals.
