Wrestler Vinod Kumar, who recently qualified to represent Australia at Rio Olympics in 66 kg weight category, is confident of winning a gold medal for Australia.

Kumar will be the second wrestler of Indian origin to don Australian colours at the Olympic games.

After arriving in Australia in 2010, Vinod worked hard to earn an Olympic berth - he says he hasn’t missed a single day of practice in the last six years!

Kumar comes from Sonepat in Haryana where, during his initial days as a wrestler, he trained under the same wrestling coach as Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt, India’s wrestling stars.
