Family and Neighbors stand up in joy as soon as he does his winning move. 

India is again in sharing a proud moment as Ravi Kumar Dahiya has staged a great comeback against Kazakhstan`s Nurislam Sanayev with ensuring at least a silver medal in Men`s freestyle wrestling 57kg category. 

His family and India are very proud and happy as a video on social media is going viral where the people are seen shouting and stand up in joy as soon as he does his winning move. 

The twist begins as Sanayev almost won the match as he registered 8 points in a row by pulling off the dreaded `fitele` move. Sanayez grabbed Ravi by the ankles and rolled the Indian wrestler four times, which gave him the 8 points to take the advantage to 9-2.

But Ravi Kumar staged a grand comeback as he first reduced the deficit to 5-9, as he pushed the Kazakh out of the mat. This move of Ravi`s left Sanayev bamboozled as he also hurt his leg.

The Indian wrestler then made his psychological advantage count as he pinned the Kazakh wrestler down with a great move to eventually win the bout `by fall`.

He will the fourth wrestler from India to win an Olympic medal after KD Jadhav (bronze in 1952), Sushil Kumar (bronze in 2008 and silver in 2012) and Yogeshwar Dutt (bronze in 2008).
