The third day of the Senior Wrestling National Championships marked the return to competition for two Olympians, Vinesh Phogat and Anshu Malik. In the 55kg category, Vinesh secured victory in the final against Jyoti, while Anshu triumphed over Sarita Mor in a challenging bout in the 59kg category at Railway Stadium, Jaipur, on Sunday. After a hiatus of 16 months due to knee surgery and involvement in the protest against former WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, Vinesh made a successful comeback to the mat.

In the final, she defeated Jyoti by a fall following a series of relatively easy bouts leading up to the championship match. This tournament marked Vinesh’s return to competitive wrestling after the World Wrestling Championships in September 2022. Competing in a non-Olympic weight class, Vinesh displayed dominance from the outset, securing a 10-0 victory over Asha of Puducherry in the pre-quarterfinals.
