Satyawan Kadian (an Arjuna Awardee and 1988 Summer Olympics Olympian)
Satyawan Kadian (Father)
Highlights From Satyawart Kadian’s Career
When Father himself is an Arjuna Awardee and 1988 Summer Olympics Olympian, I don’t think that son needs go anywhere else for his tough training.
Yes, he was trained by his own father, Satyawan Kadian in their Akhada and prepared himself for his first major medal at 2010 Youth Olympic Games (Bronze) in freestyle wrestling of 100kg category.
Later, he was called to the national champ, and trained by Vinod Kumar, the chief wrestling coach.
He achieved a milestone in 2013 World Youth Wrestling Championships, where he was the only Indian who won a medal and made his country proud.
Also in 2014 Asian Wrestling Championships, Satyawart Kadian added one more Bronze medal in the account of India, which is known as the tightest match in wrestling. Actually, it was declared draw at 6-6, but due to the last point which was scored by Kadian, he was awarded the Bronze against Alihan Djumaev (Kazakhstan).
Medal’s count used to go higher with the efforts you put to bring some good changes in your games. And it was the Commonwealth Games 2014,
where also Satyawart Kadian gifted his country, a silver medal. It was a close final against Arjun Gill of Canada (3-1).
And finally, lots and lots of hard work paid him back, but this time it was the Gold medal when Satyawart Kadian didn’t need to play the final at all,
because his opponent Roubaljeet was suffering from an injury, so he took his name out of Commonwealth Championships 2016.
Well, apart from all of his extraordinary achievements, Kadian still dreams of emulating the Olympic wrestler Sushil Kumar. Because there is no age of learning, and you should learn from the person who you thinks has better knowledge in your field. We wish you a happy life, and successful career ahead, Satyawart Kadian.
