After winning the entire nation's attention at Rio Olympics this year, the bronze medal winner Sakshi Malik has announced her marriage.
Wondering who he is?
Well, he is two years younger than her and wrestler by profession. He is famous even at the international level for wrestling, and his name is Satyawart Kadian.
Satyawart gained media attention when he became the first person to wish on her Olympics win.
Probably, I don't need to answer this question, but if you've missed it, then I must tell you she's pride of India. This lady from Punjab performed at the Rio Olympics as a wrestler when it was much needed, and won the bronze medal for India.
As soon as she arrived home in Rohtak, a grand celebration was waiting for her. Her family, friends, co-wrestlers, and the huge crowd welcomed her back in style.
Sakshi right after all the celebrations, posted this picture on her Twitter account with the caption 'New Look', she seemed euphoric and enjoyed her success.
Sakshi even received huge amount of money from different states of India along with this very precious 'Khel Ratna' award.
Even our PM Narendra Modi could not stop himself from meeting this Pride of India Sakshi Malik, and he invited her for lunch at his office.
A wrestler and love of life for Sakshi, Satyawart Kadian was the first person to congratulate her on Rio Olympics win.
He has won many international level wrestling championships, including his most famous silver medal win at Glasgow Commonwealth Games, 2014.
Satyawart is not some medal-less wrestler, as we know already that he has won many medals at international and national levels. He competes in the 97kg category.
If you follow Sakshi and Satyawart on Facebook, then I don't need to tell you about their affair. Sakshi and Satyawart both have shown their love for each other on social media platforms.
Sakshi not only inspired all the women wrestlers, but she inspired the whole nation. She will be continuing her wrestling even after her marriage, and she will also be working for women empowerment.
We once again congratulate Sakshi on her win and we wish them both a happy life ahead.
