DHARAMSHALA, September 21: A 23 year-old Tibetan girl has won gold for China in the Women's Freestyle Wrestling 67 kg class at the World Wrestling Championship in Istanbul, Turkey.

Shelok Dolma, (Spelt as Luozhuoma XI), Tibetan girl defeated her Mongolian opponent Oyunsuren Banzragch in the final bout on 16 September, becoming the first Tibetan ever to achieve the feat.

More than 900 wrestlers from 104 countries competed at the World Wrestling Championship in Turkey from 12 September to 18 September to qualify for the London 2012 Olympics.

Shelok said it was a surprise for her that she won gold at her international debut, barely six months after she won silver at the national wrestling championship in April this year.

Born to a humble family in the Tibetan region of Nyingtri in Kongpo, Shelok Dolma was selected into the Chinese national wrestling team in 2010.

"This is first time in history that a Tibetan girl bagged the international wrestling gold medal, and it is a moment of pride for all of us," said Dorje, Dolma's coach.

Sources also state that Tibetan athletes participating in domestic and international sports competitions have won 220 medals in total and currently there are 12 Tibetans representing China in various international games.
