A strong 30-member team led by Olympic medallist Sakshi Malik and Asian Games gold medallist Bajrang Punia will represent India at the World Wrestling Championships to be held in Budapest, Hungary from October 20 to 28.
Besides 30 wrestlers, the Indian contingent will also have 17 officials including coaches, physio, masseur and referees.
The team will leave for Budapest tomorrow morning where they will have pre-tournament conditioning camp ahead of the main event.
"We are fully prepared for the tournament. The girls have worked extensively on their technic after the Asian Games and we hope to better our medals tally this time around," Kuldeep said.
"We will definitely win some medals but I can't tell you the number. We are fully prepared and the camp before the main event will be very beneficial for us," he said.
