Wrestling: The men's freestyle 57kg Bronze medal match has ended, which means it's now time for the final. USA's Thomas Gilman beat Iran's Reza Atrinagharchi 9-1. Talk about a rivalry!
Wrestling: Ravi Kumar Dhaiya's win yesterday had assured India its second silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics. He's also only the second wrestler from the country to enter the final at the Olympics. Sushil Kumar had played for the gold at the 2012 London Olympics where he won a silver.
Ravi had pulled off a massive come-from-behind victory to eliminate Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan courtesy a 'victory by fall' in the semi-final bout.
Leading 2-1 heading into the second period, Dahiya was dealt a huge blow when Sanayev got behind the Indian, caught hold of his ankles and twirled him around a few times to flip the score 9-2 in his favour.
Desperately looking to turn things around, Dahiya made a brilliant comeback by first managing to push Sanayev out of bounds to reduce the deficit to 9-5. The move looked to have injured the Kazakh wrestler, but he decided to continue.
With just 50 seconds left on the clock, Dahiya scored a two-point takedown and converted it to a pin -- exposing both his opponent's shoulders to the mat -- and won the bout by fall.
Wrestling: Ravi Kumar Dahiya's men's freestyle 57kg final against Zavur Uguev is just two matches away. Deepak Punia's men's freestyle 86kg bronze medal bout will be a match after Dahiya's.
