In a remarkable start to her World Wrestling Championship journey, the young Indian wrestler Antim Panghal created a surprise by defeating the reigning world champion, Olivia Dominique Parrish, during her qualification round.

The American swung into action with a swift takedown move initiated from a right-leg attack. Undeterred, the 19-year-old adeptly defended against two subsequent similar attempts, preventing any further point-scoring until the conclusion of the initial period. Sustaining her formidable defensive stance, Panghal effectively prevented Parrish from launching any offensive move.

Antim Panghal managed to grasp the American wrestler’s left leg and executed an effective takedown move to equalize the score. Although she attempted a leg lace technique, she was unable to execute it successfully. The American received a penalty point for passivity, and Panghal skillfully protected her narrow lead to emerge victorious.

Five female wrestlers from India and ten male freestyle wrestlers have been eliminated from the tournament without securing an Olympic qualification or earning a medal in non-Olympic weight classes.
