Gold Coast (Australia), April 14 (CNMSports) - Indian wrestler Sumit Malik won the 125 kilogram freestyle title at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Saturday. Sumit won all his four bouts in the Nordic (round robin) format to emerge champion.
Korey Jarvis of Canada got the silver while Pakistan's Tayab Raza took the bronze. India got another medal when Somveer bagged bronze in the men's 86kg division. Somveer defeated Alexander Moore of Canada 7-3 in the play-off for the bronze medal.
Sumit had started his campaign with a victory over Cameroon's Claude Mbianga who had to pull out of the bout due to an injury. Mbianga had picked up the injury during his previous bout against Jarvis.
The Indian beat Jarvis in his second bout. It was an absorbing contest between two wrestlers who matched each other in both strength and technique.
