RIO Olympics bronze medallist wrestler Sakshi Malik said she wasn’t 100 per cent prepared for the Asian Wrestling Championship, her first international event after the quadrennial games. Malik had settled for a silver in women’s 60kg in Asian Wrestling Championship held in May this year.

“Actually, after (Rio) Olympics that (Asian Championship) was my first international competition, and there was too much gap, and I felt that there was some gap in the experience. We cannot say that the preparation was 100 per cent (for the Asian Championship),” Sakshi told. “Now the training is in full swing and hopefully I will do better in the future,” she quipped.
