Sakshi Malik to marry a fellow wrestler
Rio Olympics bronze medal winner in 58 kg Freestyle Wrestling category for women Sakshi Malik is all set to get hitched with a fellow wrestler.
Sakshi Malik is reported to have revealed about her marriage this year to a fellow wrestler, but refused to divulge his name.
When asked whether the impending marriage would affect her performance, the bronze medallist said, “He is very supportive and considers my dream as his own. After marriage, I will get a good friend in him, and he would also help me in my preparation. I believe marriage would have no negative bearings on my wrestling career.”
The Rohtak-born wrestler was also quoted as saying that her next target is 2020 Tokyo Olympics and that she was delighted to prove her critics wrong by grabbing a bronze at Rio. “I am happy to change the perception of those people who thought that women cannot wrestle and used to bully me at every given opportunity,” Sakshi said.
