Indian wrestler champion Sakshi Malik, who made the country feel proud by winning a Bronze medal at Rio Olympics 2016, began a new phase in her life as she tied the bond with Satyawart Kadian in Rohtak on Sunday.
Sakshi, who created history by becoming India’s 1st female wrestler to get an Olympic medal, got engaged to Satyawart in October last year.
Sushil Kumar, who had got medals in wrestling during the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics, attended the wedding.
Sakshi had earlier shared a photo of her mehndi function on social media.
Satyawart, 22, is two years younger to Sakshi and trains at his father’s akhada in Rohtak. Satyawart held a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. He also got a bronze at the Asian Championships in the same year.
In 2016, Malik became 1st woman wrestler from India to win an Olympic medal after she pulled off a sensational 8-5 victory over Aisuluu Tynybekova in the play-off bout.
She also became only the 4th Indian grappler to get a medal in the Olympics. Before her Khashaba Dadasaheb Jadhav, two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt had got medals for India.
Malik took the Indian flag at the closing ceremony of Rio Olympics.
