Sushil, Aware win gold in German GP

New Delhi: Hauled up for being overweight and missing a tournament in Thailand, star wrestler Sushil Kumar bounced back in style by winning the gold in the German Grand Prix freestyle and Greco Roman tournament in Dortmund.

In the three-day tournament which ended on Sunday, the Beijing Olympics bronze medallist won the gold in the 66kg freestyle category.

Apart from Sushil, Rahul Balasaheb Aware also bagged gold in the 55kg freestyle category as India signed off with five medals, including two gold, one silver and two bronze.

Rajiv Tomar won the silver medal in the 120 kg freestyle division, while Ravinder Singh and Ramesh Kumar bagged the bronze in the 60kg Greco Roman and 74kg freestyle categories respectively.

Sushil missed the Asian Championships last month in Pattaya due to weight problems. On his return he was warned by the Sports Ministry to ensure such a lapse did not recur in future. — PTI
