Sakshi Malik, the Indian women Wrestler who won the bronze medal at the Rio Olympics 2016, has entered the phase of her life as he tied her knots with Satyawart Kadian in Rohtak on Sunday.
Sakhi created the history last year after becoming India’s first female wrestler to win an Olympic medal. She ended the India’s wait for a medal at the Rio Games in the 58kg weight category of women wrestling. She came back from behind and won the repechage round to give the country its first medal at Rio 2016.
After the win at Rio, the whole nation was proud of her performance at Rio and the courage that she shows to win the medal despite suffering the loss in the competition. All the people appraised her for the brilliant display in Rio. This medal was even more special to India as all the players failed to win a single medal in the starting phase of the Olympics.
It was looking like that India will return empty handed from Rio but Sakshi came to rescue as he gave India it’s the first medal. She proved that the women are no less than their counterparts and if give the opportunity they can outperform their counterparts.
She got engaged to Satyawart in October last year. But now she will start a new journey from Monday with her life partner Satyawart Kadian. Kadian was born in Rohtak. He got in the limelight after he won a bronze medal at the 2010 Youth Olympics. He later went on to win the bronze medal at the junior world championship.
Satyawart Kadian got in contact with Sakshi Malik during the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 in which both the wrestlers won a silver medal for the country. Kadian is a multiple time national champion and the reigning champion in the 97kg category. Since then there were many rumours about these two players getting close. But all the rumours got cleared as they got engaged last year and announced that they will get married in 2017.
There were many guests at the wedding including India’s two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar. We wish Sakshi Malik and Satyawart Kadian for the great journey ahead.
