Speaking after the medal ceremony, Sanket said, “I would like to dedicate my medal to the freedom fighters of India, I was almost in tears as I could not win the gold medal. 5 years of hard work helped me win the medal. Everyone coming home to Sangli will be happy, when I used to see my father, I used to feel that our life is changing. A little disappointed for missing the sleep. ,
