Ravi Kumar Dahiya’s Family and Ravi Kumar Dahiya’s Education

Ravi Kumar Dahiya’s Family Tring

Ravi Kumar Dahiya’s father’s name is Rakesh Dahiya and his mother’s name is Urmila Devi. In Haryana's Sonipat district's Nahri village, Ravi Kumar was born. Ravi always had a passion for wrestling, but his financial situation forced him to work very hard to get over all of the challenges in his life. Because his father did not own any land, he made a living by renting farms.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya attended a government school in Sonipat, Haryana, where he completed his education. He also holds a BA degree. His father nearly traveled 40 kilometers from Nahri to Delhi to get fruits for Ravi. His necessities have cost money at some point during his wrestling career. However, Ravi's father was not present for his son's World Championship bronze-medal performance. Because he was working in the fields, he was unable to see Ravi perform. Rakesh Kumar put a lot of effort into making sure his son would never have to give up on his aspirations.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya Controversies

 

Bitten at Tokyo Olympics

During the Tokyo Olympics semifinal, Ravi Kumar Dahiya's opponent Nurislam Sanayev bit him painfully on the biceps. The photos showed the deep bite mark on Ravi Dahiya's right bicep after he staged one of the greatest comebacks ever on the mat. The fourth seed Indian was behind 2-9 after Sanayev applied a couple fitleys (leg lace), but as time ran out, Dahiya collected himself and used a double leg attack to take control of his opponent and win by fall. Despite being severely behind, Dahiya remained calm, showed incredible mental toughness, and dramatically changed the outcome of the fight in his favour.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya led 2-1 after the first session, but Sanayev came prepared and attacked the Indian's left leg. After taking a strong hold of it, he turned him three times to score six points in a flash. Suddenly, Dahiya was trailing and facing defeat, but his greater endurance and technical skill were still in play. He had just enough time left—one minute—to change the course of events, and he did so elegantly.

Sanayev was taken down by a double leg assault from Ravi Kumar Dahiya, who then had a firm grasp of him while he was on the mat and used a powerful pin to end the match. Dahiya was unbeatable even in his previous matches; the 23-year-old won both of them on the basis of technical dominance to get to the final.
