“The secret of success is constancy to purpose”
– Benjamin Disraeli –
The need to succeed must run in one’s veins, and challenges that are inevitable in life are overpowered only by undaunted spirit, which is reflected in a sportsman’s journey. A sport that is embraced by crowds across countries, wrestling is said to be one of the most ancient and dignified forms of combat, that boasts of remarkable feats achieved by greatest sportsmen in history.
