Grewal secured a medal for the country with a pinfall victory in the bronze medal match.
The 22-year-old wrestler from Haryana's prestigious Bhiwani district, which is known for generating leading wrestlers for the country, won his first match at the CWG 2022 against Kaouslidis.
Grewal defeated the man from Cyprus with technical dominance in a match in which he scored 10 points while conceding only one to go to the next round.
Grewal faced up against Amarveer Dhesi, a Canadian wrestler of Indian heritage, in the event's semi-finals. Grewal got the semi-final event off to a good start, scoring the first points. But his fortunes turned when Dhesi came into his own and scored many points to take the lead before Grewal squirmed in pain due to an ankle twist.
Grewal competes in the 125kg weight class and also earned bronze in the Bolat Turlykhanov Cup in 2022. He has always been interested in athletics and has tried swimming and judo before focusing solely on wrestling. He took bronze in the 2018 Junior Asian Championship.
However, a devastating knee injury kept him off the mat for over two years. Mohit made a successful comeback in 2021, capturing gold at the U-23 national championships.
At the U-23 World Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, he also participated in the bronze medal play-off. When he returned to the country, he advanced to the finals of the 2021 senior national championships, where he won a silver medal.
