India seems to be faring well at the Tokyo Olympics. Recently, wrestler Bajrang Punia qualified for the semi-finals after winning the quarterfinal round against Morteza Ghiasi in the category of men’s freestyle 65kg.
Bajrang Punia. You legend.— #Tokyo2020 for India (@Tokyo2020hi) August 6, 2021
What a win! 👏👏👏#Tokyo2020
Soon after, an old video of Bajrang Punia’s coach, celebrating his win at the 2018 World Championship started trending on Twitter.
Because while some scream out of happiness and some go straight for a hug, that’s not the style of Punia’s coach, Shako Bentinidis. He went for a slam dunk and wrestled with the player. It was his way to congratulate him.
