Anil Kumar and Jyoti provided India two bronze medals with contrasting performances in their respective weight categories on the second day of the Asian Wrestling Championship in New Delhi. While Anil registered a thrilling come-from-behind 7-6 victory over Uzbekistan’s Muhammadali Shamsiddinov to clinch the bronze medal in the Greco-Roman 85kg category, Jyoti won the bronze in women’s 75kg category.

Jyoti, despite losing her semifinal bout to Japan’s Masako Furuichi 0-10, could bag the bronze medal as there were less number of wrestlers in her weight division and had no opponent to fight in the repechage round. In Greco-Roman 71kg, Deepak also failed to get another bronze for the country as he went down to Nurgazy Asangulov of Kyrgyzstan 1-8 in a one-sided contest.
