New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Ravi Kumar Dahiya for winning the Silver Medal in wrestling at Tokyo Olympics 2020 and called him a remarkable wrestler.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister said: "Ravi Kumar Dahiya is a remarkable wrestler! His fighting spirit and tenacity are outstanding. Congratulations to him for winning the Silver Medal at #Tokyo2020. India takes great pride in his accomplishments."

Dahiya won the silver medal in Tokyo Olympics after losing to Russian two-time World Champion Zaur Uguev 4-7 in the men's freestyle 57kg final.

 
The 23-year-old became the second male wrestler to win a silver for India in wrestling at the Olympics, after wrestler Sushil Kumar.

This is India's fifth medal in Tokyo after medals from Mirabai Chanu, P.V. Sindhu, Lovlina Borgohain and the men's hockey team.

President Ram Nath Kovind and Sports Minister Anurag Thakur also congratulated Dahiya.
