NEW DELHI: Ace India wrestler Vinesh Phogat won her second gold medal in two weeks by storming to the 53kg title at the Matteo Pelicone Rankings Series in Rome. Vinesh, 26, beat Canada's Diana Weicker 4-0 and has thus won gold without dropping a point throughout the tournament.

This is the Asian Games champion's second gold medal in two weeks, having earlier won the 53kg title in the Outstanding Ukrainian wrestlers and Coaches Memorial tournament in Kiev, Ukraine. The tournament in Kiev was Vinesh's first in over a year.

Vinesh had to wrestle only twice in her first four bouts as she got walkovers in two on Saturday. She won the other two bouts by fall and managed to go on and win the title without dropping a point but Vinesh said that she wanted to attack more. IANS
