Oslo: Indian grappler Anshu Malik has scripted history as she became the first Indian woman to win a silver medal in the World Wrestling Championships. Anshu lost to Olympic medallist Helen Maroulis of the USA 4-1 in the summit clash of women's 57 kg category at Oslo in Norway yesterday.

Maroulis won the gold medal after her splendid show. Anshu Malik is a two-time Asian Championship medalist, which includes gold and a Ranking Series silver medalist.

India's Sarita Mor, a two-time Asian champion, won a bronze medal in the women's 59 kilogram category after beating Sweden's Sara Lindborg 8-2 in the playoff. Previously, only five Indian women had won bronze at the world championships.
