Olympian Geeta Phogat, a 2013 World championship bronze medalist, is all set to tie the nuptial knot with international wrestler Pawan Kumar later this month and both she and her husband are likely to be seen in action in the PWL.

Besides, Geeta's sisters Babita Kumari and Ritu Phogat will also fight in the league. However, the talented Vinesh Phogat, a Commonwealth Games gold medallist, will miss out due to an injury suffered in the Olympics.

Rio Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi Malik, her fiance and Commonwealth Games silver medallist Satyawart Kadian and his younger brother Somveer will also present another family picture in the PWL.

Sisters-in-law Yana Rattigan and Maria Stadnik will be among the foreign wrestlers who are related to each other. Maria, a three-time Olympic medallist, is the wife of Yana’s brother. Yana is from England, while Maria is from Azerbaijan.

Interestingly, they have fought against each other in many international events.

Sweden's Mattsson sisters, Sofia and Johanna, will be the other attractions. Sofia won a 53kg bronze medal in the Rio Olympics, while Johanna had lost in her 58kg first round bout against Sakshi Malik.

With near and dear ones lending their support, these wrestlers will give their best to shine in the PWL, starting from December 15.
