Sending out a warning to her rivals ahead of the Asian Games, Indian wrestler Vinesh Phogat grabbed a gold at the Spanish Grand Prix in Madrid, conceding just one point in five bouts en route the dominating title victory.
Vinesh began her campaign in a dominating fashion by beating Mariana Diaz on technical superiority and then thumped Erin Golston 12-1.
"My confidence got boosted after winning gold at CWG. In this competition, I wanted to see where I lack, heading into the Asian Games. It was a big competition, it was world class. The target was to play and do well here before the Asian Games," Vinesh told PTI from Madrid.
Vinesh, who trains in Hungary with her new coach Woller Akos, said she wants the Hungarian to come to India as her personal trainer.
"He is a world class coach. I wish he can be with me in India as my personal trainer. I was looking for someone like him. I have trained for about 20 days with him in Hungary and he has nicely picked where I need to do better. He is happy with my performance so far and preparing me for gold at Asian Games," said Vinesh.
