Baba Ramdev dares Olympic medallist to wrestle him
New Delhi: Before the second semifinal between Mumbai Maharathi and NCR Punjab Royals in the ongoing Pro Wrestling League in the national capital, yoga guru Baba Ramdev surprised everyone by challenging 2008 Olympic silver medallist Andriy Stadnik for a wrestling match.
"I have wrestled with national level wrestlers. But it seems more exciting to compete with an international level player. The friendly match between us will exhibit the true power of yoga," said Ramdev.
Notably, Andrey had beaten Indian star wrestler Sushil Kumar in the Beijing Olympic. He had reached the final round of the Olympics and Sushil had managed to win a bronze there.
The challenge, however, took the world medallist by surprise but after coming across Ramdev's preparations, he said that the Indian yoga guru must wrestle.
It may be recalled that earlier in 2016, on occasion of 20th anniversary of his Ashram in Haridwar, Baba Ramdev had dared Sushil Kumar for a friendly bout.
