Baba Ramdev Defeated Olympic medalist Pro Wrestling League
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev defeated Beijing Olympic silver medallist Andrey Stadnik 12-0 in the exhibition bout in Pro Wrestling League season two on Wednesday.
Ramdev walked onto the mat and, before the bout began, exhibited his firebrand yoga moves before proceeding to his friendly battle with Stadnik, 34, a former European champion.
Ramdev showed wrestling acumen as he pulled out the best of technical moves such as take-down, one-leg hold and pinning down.
Since it was a promotional bout, Stadnik responded by allowing Ramdev to have his way, as did the referees. After nearly two minutes, Standnik surrendered.
Andrey had defeated wrestler Sushil Kumar in Beijing. He had reached the finals, giving Sushil an opportunity to play in repechage and won a bronze medal. By doing so the India wrestler became the first India to win a medal in wrestling.
This is not the first time Baba Ramdev challenged an international wrestler. Earlier on the occasion of 20th anniversary of his Ashram in Haridwar, he had challenged Indian-wrestler Sushil Kumar in 2016.
