When a wrestler becomes a Kabaddi player’s idol

Every player has a role model. Many players take inspiration from their role models and shape their careers. It is often observed that a player’s career has taken off following a small piece of advice from their idol. Each player has a different respect for their role model.

The last few years have seen many new faces emerge in Indian Kabaddi. Naveen Kumar, Nitesh Kumar, Pawan Sehrawat are some of them. When it comes to the role models of kabaddi players, many players take the name of another kabaddi player. The story of Pawan Singh Sehrawat, the stormy raider of Bengaluru Bulls, is different. Pawan was recently asked who his role model was?

While answering this question, Pawan mentioned the name of a wrestler. Yes, Pawan named Sushil Kumar, India’s leading wrestler, as his role model. Pawan said that Sushil Kumar is his role model apart from the field of kabaddi. Sushil Kumar is India’s leading wrestler and has won one bronze and one silver medal in the Olympics to date. The Government of India has honoured him with the Arjuna Award, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award and Padma Shri Award for his contribution to wrestling.

Pawan also named Manjeet Chillar as a role model in Kabaddi. Manjeet is a good captain and a good player, said Pawan. Pawan had caught everyone’s attention with his game in the last two seasons of Pro Kabaddi. He was also the Most Valuable Player in the sixth season and scored 360 points in the seventh season.
