From our Sports Correspondent

Sangeeta Phogat, one of the six wrestlers who protested against W.F.I. chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh at Jantar Mantar, today won a Bronze Medal in the non-Olympic 59 K.G. Category that featured six grapplers at the Hungary Ranking Series Tournament here. Sangeeta began with a crushing defeat by fall but bounced back with a win in her second bout.

Sangeeta Phogat lost her semifinal but won the Bronze play-off 6-2 against young Hungarian Viktoria Borsos, the U-20 World Championship Silver medallist.

Sangeeta, who won the National Championship in the 62 K.G. last year, began with a defeat by fall against American Jennifer Page Rogers.

The contest lasted just 80 seconds with the American pulling away with a right leg attack that led to a take-down and multiple rolls. Eventually, the American got herself in a position to pin Sangeeta.
