Double Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar on Sunday clinched a gold medal at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championships in Johannesburg, South Africa.
He returned to international wrestling after a gap of almost three years.
The Indian wrestler defeated New Zealand's Akash Khullar in the final of the men's 74-kilogram freestyle category.
India’s other wrestler in the same category, Parveen Rana, also won a bronze medal.
Soon after the victory, Sushil took to his Twitter handle and dedicated the win to his coach and motherland.
It’s a very proud and emotional moment for me as I have returned to the mat on international level after a gap of 3years. I want to dedicate this Gold medal won in #Commonwealthwrestlingchampionship at #SouthAfrica to my guru and to my Nation. JaiHind????
