28-year old Navjot put up a great fight, a testament to the fact that she has had a considerable experience in the field. 

She had earlier won a silver at the Asian Championships in 2013 and a bronze in 2014 Commonwealth Games in 67kg.

Indian female wrestlers are definitely throwing great punches, with Sakshi winning a bronze and Vinesh Phogat winning a silver.
