The celebrated Indian wrestler, who won the Commonwealth Championships last December, looked in menacing form as he took down his opponents with ease. “This my second innings as I’m making my return. It’s due to the blessings of all my well-wishers that I’m doing well,” Sushil told TOI after beating Connor Evans of Australia by a fall, just a minute into his six-minute match.

It was the Aussie who came out charging at the start but Sushil soon got the measure of his opponent and pinned him down. He won two technical points in the first 50 seconds before finishing the match pinning Evans to the mat. The thrashing of the Aussie left the host fans stunned and for the jubilant Indian fans it was all over too fast.

The Indian showed no mercy to his quarterfinal opponent too as he beat Pakistan’s Muhammed Asad Butt by technical superiority. Sushil scored six points in the first period and four more a minute into the second session to book his place in the final. Earlier, in the first round, Sushil beat Jevon Balfour of Canada.
