Indian juniors fail to make it big at World C’ship

NEW DELHI, Sept 10:
India finished the Junior World Championship in Pattaya, Thailand on a rather low note with its grapplers just about managing to bag a couple of bronze medals from the six-day long event.
Indu Chaudhary opened India’s account with a bronze in the 44kg weight category in the female section, but after that only Pradeep managed a medal, in the boy’s segment.
Pradeep (50kg) started with a loss in the freestyle category before clawing his way back in the repechage round to win India its second bronze from the championship.
The 21-year-old was no match for Ruslan Surkhayev, losing the first period 0-1 and then succumbing 2-6 in the next, to hand his Azerbaijan opponent a comfortable victory.(PTI)
