Having secured an Olympic berth, world championship bronze-medallist Ravi Dahiya says he would be looking to assess his medal prospects at the big event by how he performs at this week’s Asian Wrestling Championships.
Top wrestlers from countries like Iran, Korea, Japan, and Mongolia will be in action at the Championships to be held from February 18 to 23, and Dahiya feels competing and excelling against the best will be a confidence-booster for him.
Not many knew Dahiya before his World Championship exploits and the wrestler from Nahri in Haryana is desperate to make a mark with medals in Asian Championships as well as the Olympics this year.
“The most important thing is that the Asian Championship is being held in Delhi. Last year, I didn’t win any medal so my target this time would be to win the gold, perform better and prepare well for the Olympics,” Dahiya said.
