india Updated: Oct 05, 2010 20:32 IST

India's Anil Kumar bagged the third gold medal for India in wrestling, outclassing Australia's Hassene Fkiri in the final of the 96kg Greco-Roman style at the Commonwealth Games here today.

Anil was by far the better wrestler on display and kept his calm to beat his Australian rival 6-0 in the aggressive final bout.

Fkiri won the silver while South Africa's Hugues Kakoma Bella-Lufu pocketed the bronze in this category.

Earlier, Anil had a contrasting opening two bouts as he overpowered Mark Montogomery of Northern Ireland 13-0 in his first match of the day but later had to work hard to clich a 3-1 victory over South African Hugues Kakoma in the semifinal.
