New Delhi: Support and praise has been pouring in for Indian wrestler Sakshi Malik ever since she became the first female wrestler from the country to win a medal at the Olympics. The wrestler won a bronze medal which also happens to be the first medal for India at the 2016 Rio Olympics. 

Now, Anand Mahindra, Chairman and MD of home-grown brand Mahindra & Mahindra has announced a reward for the wrestler who has made the country proud. He has announced on Twitter that they will be gifting a brand new customized Mahindra Thar SUV to India’s Olympic Hero.
