He then represented India in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and won a silver medal in the 97 kg weight class. Personal life He is the son of Satyawan Kadian, an Arjuna Awardee and 1988 Summer Olympics Olympian. Having trained in the akhada run under his father, he broke into the national camp in 2012 after a stellar performance at the 2012 Nationals in Gonda, Uttar Pradesh. In 2014, Chief coach Vinod Kumar, who was a teammate of his father's during the 1988 Olympics, is confident that Kadian, competing in a higher weight category will ensure him medals. "It is rare for us to get a wrestler who is competing for medals regularly in the higher weight divisions. We are very lucky to have Satyawart. And the best part is he is only 20 years old. If we keep working on him we are sure he will become one of the mainstays of this team in the years to come." Satyawart dreams of emulating Olympic wrestler Sushil Kumar in the future. He is married to Sakshi Malik.

He was able to redeem himself in the repêchage round, beating his opponent Bilal Hussain Awad of Pakistan 4-0 there. That pushed him into the bronze medal match where he unfortunately lost 3-0 to Mamed Ibragimov of Kazakhstan.
