Asian Games: India's Greco-Romans wrestlers eager to step out of freestyle shadow

At the other end of the room, where the lights shone brighter and the air was thick with excitement, India's top freestyle wrestlers tirelessly obliged crowds of reporters, only occasionally breaking off to catch their breath.
Unsurprisingly, freestyle wrestlers form two-thirds of India's 18-member party heading to Jakarta, having delivered four medals in the last three Olympics.
An Olympic medal, whatever its hue, could do wonders to Greco-Roman, just like Sushil Kumar's bronze at the 2008 Beijing Games did for freestyle wrestling in India.
