VINESH PHOGAT DOES INDIA PROUD JUST LIKE HER COUSIN SISTERS

Vinesh Phogat (one of the Phogat sisters) has made India proud by bringing the gold medal to the country. She wrestled against Japan's Yuki Irie. Actually, it was a tricky and a subtle move that had left her opponent surprised and made Vinesh win the gold medal. Woller Akos, the coach of the gold medallist said, "The move totally surprised the opponent. It was the main reason she won." The coach was miles away when Vinesh had to step on the mat to fight her final match against Irie. She had smooth fights till the time she was to fight Irie, who is one of the most trickiest known wrestler. But during the break between the semi final and the final match, Akos had sent a list of instructions to Vinesh who had strictly abided by those instructions. She made sure that the Phogat sister blocked Irie's right leg and switched her leg for the final showdown. Akos said, "If your right leg is at the back, the other wrestler has to reach out more and it may give you a chance to attack." So during the final moments, Vinesh was following her coach's instructions and did not let her opponent move by blocking her leg. Vinesh launched a final attack and scored a four pointer, which led to her winning the gold medal. But two years ago, winning a gold medal seemed impossible for Vinesh when she had injured her knee while fighting China's Sun Yanan. She stepped on the mat with confidence and agression to win, but unfortunately left the mat with tears streaming down her face. Everyone was genuinely concerned and worried if she'll ever be able to make a come-back. But this win of hers against Irie has made everyone believe that if an athlete has the desire and passion running down the veins, then there is nothing in the world that can stop him. Well, the entire nation is very proud of you Vinesh !!!
