Shobha De, Want a Selfie with Sakshi Malik ??

And finally, India bags a Medal! Sakshi Malik won a bronze medal in the wrestling 58kg category after the Indian beat Aisuluu Tynybekova 8-5 in the bronze medal bout.
In a thrilling contest, Sakshi fought back from 0-5 down to seal the bout 8-5 in her favour.

All thanks to the sweet Sakshi Malik who actually is a winner wrestler but her innocent face and angelic smile is what India wake up to today! What a day, Rakshabandhan, and whatte morning it is, to wake up to such a cute winner wrestler of Haryana.

As per the latest news, Haryana Government has announced 2.5crore rupees and a government job to Sakshi as a token of honour and appreciation.
Sakshi Malik is a 23 years old girl of 64 kgs and has brought the mighty first medal of the Rio 2016 Olympics for the Indian contingent.

Wishes and happiness are pouring in since morning and all Indians are rejoicing this first win. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also congratulated and tweeted “On this very auspicious day of Raksha Bandhan, Sakshi Malik, a daughter of India, wins a Bronze & makes all of us very proud.”

This win marks the beginning for India this year and also Sakshi shuts the mouths of some rather frustrated Indians. I hope people like Shobha De might want to take a selfie with the winner now 🙂
As per Sakshi’s coach, apart from her remarkable hard work, she loves to hear Haryanvi songs. Sakshi also definitely reminds of film Sultan’s character of Anushka Sharma – Aarfa – who was also from Haryana.

Well, with this, let’s hope and pray for some more medals!
