Tokyo Olympics 2020: 'You’re a fighter', Twitter reacts to Ravi Dahiya's pinfall victory over Nurislam Sanayev

·2 min read

Ravi Dahiya ensured India clinched yet another medal in the Tokyo Olympics 2020 after scoring a sensational pinfall victory over Kazakhstan's Nurislam Sanayev in the men's 57kg wrestling event, becoming only the second Indian wrestler to qualify for the final in the Olympics.

Dahiya was trailing the Kazakh grappler for the most part and with the score reading 9-2, it seemed as if his hopes of progressing any further in the competition were over. The fourth seed however, bounced back in the final minutes of the bout with a double leg attack that ultimately sealed the deal in favour of the wrestler from the village of Nahri in Sonepat district, Haryana.

Dahiya faces world champion Zavur Uguev in the gold medal match on Thursday, 5 August.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter to Dahiya's feat as he became the fifth Indian wrestler to win an Olympic medal while taking India's tally in Tokyo 2020 to four:
