Sakshi Malik has been the flag-bearer for female wrestlers in the country and has gloriously represented India globally across many tournaments over the past few years and she will be pivotal to the capital side’s chances in the Pro Wrestling League season 4. Along with Sakshi, Rahul Aware who has picked up form over the past year will be looking to dominate the opposition this season and further prove his credentials as a genuine force in his category.
Aware’s form saw him bag Gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast, Australia, beating Canadian Steven Takahashi which was his first medal since he won Gold and Bronze medals at the 2011 Commonwealth and Asian Championships respectively.

Sakshi, though, has been much more prolific and became the first Indian female wrestler to secure a medal at the Olympics bagging Bronze in the 2016 edition in Rio-de-Janeiro. In the Commonwealth Games, she won consecutive medals in the last 2 editions claiming Silver and Bronze in Glasgow (2014) and Gold Coast (2018) respectively. She also has won medals in the Commonwealth and Asian Championships.
Both the grapplers will be looking to inspire their team to perform exceptionally and bag the trophy for the team. Other notable members of the Delhi squad will be Sumit Malik and Ukranian Shutsova Anastasia.
