BELLARY : JSW Sports, the sport arm of the JSW Group conglomerate, in collaboration with the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) is hosting the 2021 edition of the Junior Women and Sub-Junior Girls National Wrestling Championships at the flagship Inspire Institute of Sport facility from March 19-21.

The top age-group tournament in the country will see over 500 wrestlers from 26 units competing on 3 mats inside the state-of-the-art Combat Spot Centre at IIS, a 62mx62m column free indoor arena. The competition will see action in 20 weight categories across the 3 days of competition. Each weight class will award a Gold, a Silver and two Bronze medals.

WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who is present in Bellary for the event, welcomed the initiative to host the nationals at the IIS. “We are pleased that corporates like JSW are coming forward to host the nationals. The IIS facility is very impressive and professionally run, and this will undoubtedly be a very good experience for all the participating wrestlers.

Talking about the decision to host the nationals, Manisha Malhotra, Head of Sports Excellence and Scouting at JSW Sports said, “We are confident of providing a world class competition experience to the girls participating in the competition. The wrestlers here are potential future Olympians and World Champions for the country and we believe it is important for them to have a training and competition environment at par with international standards.”

Among the wrestlers headlining the event would be Cadet World Champion Komal, Youth Olympic Silver medalist Simran from Delhi and former cadet World Championship medalist Sonika Hooda, who will be representing Haryana.

The institute, spread over 42 acres in Bellary, Karnataka, has previously hosted the 3rd Elite Women’s National Boxing Championships and has also been the base for the Boxing Federation of India’s elite men’s and women’s national camps.
