New Delhi: Wrestler Anshu Malik returned home on Saturday after winning a silver medal at the Wrestling World Championship in Norway. Speaking to ANI at the Delhi airport, she said, “I am extremely elated to have won a silver medal for India. 

I could not win a gold. Struggles are always there, especially in a sports person’s life. I got injured before my bout. Anshu needed immediate medical help after the bout and she was in tears. Nevertheless, I will do better next time. For now, I will take some rest and then start preparing for the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games.
