BRISBANE, April 13 – Martin Erasmus became the first South African to win gold in men’s wrestling since 1958, with victory in the men’s freestyle 97kg category at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on Friday.

It had been 60 years since the last time the South African anthem played in men’s wrestling at the Commonwealth Games as Erasmus claimed gold ahead of India’s Mausam Khatri.

Sharing bronze were Alexios Kaoslidis of Cyprus and Jordan Steen of Canada.
