Indian wrestler Vinesh Phogat on Sunday won the gold medal in the women's 53-kg category at XXIV Outstanding Ukrainian Wrestlers and Coaches Memorial in Kyiv.

Vinesh Phogat defeated world number seven Vanesa Kaladzinskaya of Belarus in the finals to win the gold medal and make a winning return to her first competitive outing since the Covid-19 induced lockdown.

"It is a winning return for #TOPSAthlete @Phogat_Vinesh as she wins the gold medal in the women's 53 kg at the #OutstandingUkrainianWrestlersAndCoachesMemorial event after beating World #7 and 2017 World Champion Vanesa Kaladzinskaya 10-8 in the final," SAI Media tweeted.

The Asian Games and Commonwealth Games gold medalist had defeated Romania's Ana A by fall in the semi-final on Saturday to reach the summit clash.

Vinesh has already booked a place in the Tokyo Olympics for the 53kg category.

Now, the 26-year-old will be seen in action in the season's first ranking tournament from March 4-7 in Rome. (ANI)
