Mohit became the fourth male wrestler from India to achieve a gold medal in the history of the U20 World Championships, following in the footsteps of Palwinder Cheema (2001), Ramesh Kumar (2001), and Deepak Punia (2019). In the previous year’s event, Antim Panghal secured a gold medal, making her the sole female wrestler to have accomplished this feat.

Mohit Kumar displayed an impressive feat by overcoming a challenging 0-6 situation to secure victory in the ultimate match against Eldar Akhmadudinov, with a final score of 9-8. His unblemished record shines through this year with 13 consecutive wins and no defeats. Additionally, he clinched the gold medals at the Asian U20 Championships and the Asian U23 Championships, further solidifying his remarkable achievements in the current year.

During the 2023 event, India has secured a cumulative of four medals up to this point. These include Mohit’s gold medal, along with two silver and one bronze medals. Notably, Priya Malik has successfully advanced to the final match in the women’s 76kg category. This places India in a favorable position to potentially earn a pair of gold medals in a single edition.
