Haryana reiterated their position as
the premier wrestling powerhouse bagging 24 gold, 16 silver
and 18 bronze medals at the Khelo India Youth Games here
Such was Haryana's dominance that they won more gold
medals than all other states put together.
Maharashtra finished second, a media release said.
Though Delhi boys showed impressive performance on the
first day in the Greco Roman category, winning nine medals
including five gold medals, they failed to maintain the
momentum and added just one gold medal later on.
From Maharashtra, U17 80kg freestyle wrestler Vetal
Shelke, a ward of noted coach Kaka Pawar, grabbed the gold
medal, the release added.
Haryana's dominance extends to women's section too and
it bagged 12 out of 14 gold medals despite missing
international stars like Anshu and Sonam.
