Indian wrestler Sandeep Tulsi Yadav on 22 September 2013 won bronze medal in the 66kg Greco-Roman category at the Senior World Wrestling Championships in Budapest. Sandeep Tulsi Yadav defeated Serbia's Aleksandar Maksimovic, 4-0 to bag the bronze medal.

This bronze medal is India’s first ever medal in the 66kg Greco-Roman category at the Senior World Wrestling Championships.

In the elimination round, Sandeep Tulsi Yadav got a bye. In the second round he defeated Spanish Wrestler Navarro Sanchez Isamel by 5-0 points. The next round was with the Moldova wrestler Cosniceanu Mihali which won by 6-2 points.

Unfortunately, in the next bout with the Korean Wrestler Ryu Han Su he lost by 0-10. Since the Korean wrestler entered in the final, the Indian got the chance to qualify for the repechage.

This is India's best-ever show at the World Championships with three medals. Freestyle wrestlers, Amit Kumar Dahiya and Bajrang Kumar had, earlier, won a silver and a bronze in their respective weight categories (55kg and 60 kg).

The freestyle wrestlers finished a commendable sixth in the overall team rankings, which also earned the country its maiden berth in the World Cup to be held in March 2014.
