In a special conversation, Sonam said, ‘I had a ligament injury in my knee. Now I am going through the rehabilitation process. I think in a few days I will be completely injury free. There is no pressure on me in the Olympics. I have nothing to lose. Instead of trying something new, I am focusing on the basics. I was in good form before the injury. I want to make the country proud by winning a medal in Tokyo. Due to injury, Sonam could not take part in the recently concluded Poland Ranking Series (Poland Open Wrestling 2021 Ranking Series).

Recalling her first bout against Sakshi Malik, Sonam said, “I saw her for the first time in 2017. It was my dream to fight against him. When the match against him was fixed, my coach told me that you have nothing to lose. I still can’t remember how I did it. I had put everything at stake in that bout.

I am not only hopeful but sure that Anshu will also be able to do well in Tokyo Olympics.
Sonam has wrestled against boys
Sonam has defeated boys older than her many times in wrestling. “When I wrestled with the boys, I used to enjoy defeating them. Though it was not an easy task I always used to go against him with the intention of winning. I used to think that this is my exam and I have to pass it.
