After nearly spending a year in hibernation, Rio Games bronze medallist Sakshi Malik has entered the final of the Asian Championship. The 24-year-old wrestler got hold of Nabira Esenbaeva of Uzbekistan 6-2 in the quarter-final and then smacked Ayaulym Kassymova 15-3 in her semi-final to make a cake-walk into the finals. Sakshi won her Olympics medal in the 58kg category, but die to overweight changed her category in this competition.

India had bagged a total of nine medals including a gold, three silver and five bronze when the tournament was held in Bangkok, Thailand past year.

After having been taken away in a stretcher in the Rio Olympics a year ago, when she had aspired to win a medal, Vinesh had worked her way back with courage and patience, after the knee surgery.

In the 55kg category final, Vinesh Phogat lost to Sae Nanjo of Japan to win the silver medal. But it was good experience. She was beaten 0-8. "I am happy to be back on the mat", said Vinesh, adding that she would go back to her 48kg category. Divya was the third Indian girl who lost to another Japanese gold medallist of Rio Games Sara Dosho.

Earlier, Ritu had defeated Narangerel Erdenesukh of Mongolia in the qualification round 11-4 before defeating Yeo-Jin Kim of Korea in her quarterfinal bout.
