Sakshi Malik won our hearts when she won the bronze medal in wrestling in Rio. She gave off a very girl-next-door vibe with oodles of humility and sportsmanship.
Sakshi Malik had recently admitted that she was going to get married to a fellow wrestler. She had even gone forth and said that he is a supportive man and will encourage her to wrestle in the future.
And now the name which was missing earlier is up. Sakshi Malik is going to marry fellow wrestler Satyawart Kadian.
According to reports, they had agreed to marry even before Sakshi had left for Rio to compete in the Olympics.
Both Sakshi and Satyawart are from Rohtak and come from wrestling families. Satyawart’s father is an Arjuna Awardee and taught Satyawart to wrestle in his ownakhada in Rohtak.
Satyawart is no stranger to international glory. He won the silver medal at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, 2014 and also the bronze medal at the Asian Championships the same year.
Satyawart congratulated her love for winning the bronze ( and his heart too) at the Rio.
We congratulate them both and wish for their future life ahead. Sakshi has promised to not quit wrestling even after marriage.
ONE THING IS FOR SURE THAT I WILL NOT QUIT WRESTLING AFTER MARRIAGE. IN FACT, MY RESOLUTION TO TAKE MY GAME TO ANOTHER LEVEL HAS BEEN STRENGTHENED MORE THAN EVER NOW.
And that is why we are more proud of the girl. Way to go Sakshi !
