For Bajrang, who won a bronze in the 60kg category in Budapest, Hungary last night, Olympic medallist Yogeshwar has always been a big influence throughout his career.
     
"Yogeshwar and I always share the room in camps. He has been a great guiding force for me besides my coaches. He is always there to point out my shortcomings to make me a better wrestler. He deserves a lot of credit for this medal. His presence at the mat side also helped. I consider him my family and he also treats me like his younger brother," Bajrang, who competes in the same weight category as Yogeshwar, said.
     
Asian Champion Amit Kumar won a silver in the 55kg category after going down 1-2 against Iran's Hassan Farman Rahimi on the opening day of World Wrestling Championships on Monday at the Papp Laszlo Arena in Budapest.
     
Despite conceding early points in a crucial bout, the Haryana lad produced a clinical display to rout Mongolia's Nyam-Ochir Enkhsaikhan 9-2 in the bronze medal play-off in the 60kg category.
