Indian boxer Sarita Devi broke down on the podium during the Asian Games medal ceremony for the lightweight 57-60 kg category in Incheon on Wednesday, refusing to wear the bronze medal awarded to her around her neck. She accepted the medal in her hand and wiped her tears holding it, before handing it to South Korean silver medalist Ji Na Park, who had defeated Sarita in a controversial bout on Tuesday.

I don't blame Sarita Devi for being upset. She was robbed. Hope she gets a great welcome back home.

The 32-year-old Sarita later said she would continue to compete as she wants to set an example for future boxers, but "this is not acceptable." Sarita lost on points against Park in a bout where she was the dominant boxer. (Medal Tally)
