Ravi Kumar Dahiya, an Indian men’s freestyle wrestler who had guaranteed a medal for India after qualifying for the final of the Men’s 57kg event at the Tokyo Olympics, has now settled for silver after losing 4-7 against Russian Olympic Committee’s (ROC) Zavur Uguev.

The Russian drew the first blood of the match, launching Ravi Dahiya from the mat twice in less than a minute to take a 2-0 lead. However, the Indian quickly pinned him, bringing the score to 2-2. Just as it appeared Ravi had found his stride, Uguev countered with a fantastic leg hold and pinned the Haryana boy down to take a 4-2 lead into halftime.

Much like the first half, the second half started slowly before Uguev drove Ravi Dahiya off the mat to take a 5-2 lead with only two minutes remaining. The Indian’s powerful offensive instincts failed him once more, as Uguev halted his attack to take a 7-4 lead with just 90 seconds remaining.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya continued to attack for the remainder of the bout, but was unable to breach the Russian’s stout defense and had to settle for silver.

India’s hunt for its second individual Olympic gold medalist continues with Ravi Kumar Dahiya’s loss today in the Makuhari Messe Hall.

At the age of 25, Sushil Kumar became the first Indian to win an Olympic medal. He won a bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics, putting India on track to repeat the feat at future Olympics. At London 2012, he won silver once more, and he continued the tradition. What he didn’t realize was that other wrestlers, many of whom were considerably younger, were keeping a close eye on him. Ravi Dahiya was one of them. Look at where he is now.

Ravi Dahiya, 23, is on track to emulate Sushil Kumar’s achievements in his potential future career. Ravi’s talent and hard work are undeniable, and it all stems from his desire to be the best and to beat the greatest. Yogeshwar Dutt (whose hostel room he also occupied) and Sushil Kumar, both star wrestlers who have trained in the same venue as Ravi, are two of his biggest influences.

He has been training at the Chhatrasal stadium since he was a child, and he has sacrificed a lot to get to this point. The teenage wrestler from Sonipat also has his family heritage to thank for his success, since other members of his village and family have also been wrestlers.

Ravi Kumar, at this rate, will be able to compete in at least three more Olympic Games by the age of 35. More than that, he may either match Sushil Kumar’s achievement by winning another Olympic medal or surpass it by winning more. Regardless, he has gone where few Indian wrestlers have gone before, and his tale is worth following up on and delving into for the future as well as the past.
