Incheon: Women wrestlers Vinesh Phogat and Geetika Jakhar bagged a bronze medal each in 48kg and 63kg freestyle events respectively as India made an impressive start in their wrestling campaign at the Asian Games here on Saturday. (Day 8 Blog)
Glasgow Commonwealth Games gold winner Vinesh needed two minutes 31 seconds to beat Narangerel Erdenesukh of Mongolia in a completely one-sided bronze-medal bout. The referee stopped the bout after the Indian had taken 10-0 lead over her hapless opponent.
Earlier, she made it to quarterfinals after pinning down Yongmi Pak of North Korea in a 3-1 'decision by point' verdict. The Indian then recorded a verdict by fall win over Dauletbike Yakhshi Muratova of Uzbekistan in quarterfinals before losing to Eri Tosaka of Japan in the semifinals.
