Sanjay today earned India its second gold in wrestling, beating South Africa's Brian Richard Addinall in the final of the 74kg Greco-Roman style at the Commonwealth Games here today.

Sanjay displayed a gritty performance in front of the cheering crowd at the wrestling arena of the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex here and defeated his English opponent 2-0 in the title decider.

Against Addinall, Sanjay adopted a wait and watch policy and scored points whenever he got an opportunity. The Indian scored a point each in both the rounds to pocket his first Commonwealth Games gold.

Sanjay got the better of Samoa's Laupule Ekeroma 3-0 and Perefegha Kiribein of Nigeria 2-0 in his earlier two bouts.

Apart from Sanjay, Ravinder Singh also earned a gold for India in the 60kg Greco-Roman category today.
