The 24-year-old Vinesh secured the first place after getting past Poland’s Roksana 3-2 in the final clash. En route to her finals, Vinesh had beaten Sofia Mattson of Sweden in the quarterfinals.

This victory marks Vinesh’s third consecutive gold medal. Her previous two came in the Grand Prix of Spain and at the Yasar Dogu International last month.

“The biggest positives from wrestling against strong opponents are it forces me out of my comfort zone, makes me push my limits, and teaches important lessons! Happy with my performance at the #PolandOpen Excited by this start as a 53 kg wrestler, now onwards and upwards,” Vinesh tweeted after securing her gold medal.
