Divya Kakran added the first bronze to India’s wrestling tally at the 18th Asian Games, beating Taipei’s Chen Wenling in the third-place play-off bout for the 68kg category in Indonesia on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old Asian championships silver-medallist prevailed on account of technical superiority, after putting in a dominant display. She needed just 89 seconds to complete the win and claim the bronze.

Kakran, earlier, couldn’t overcome a slow start in the quarterfinal as her Mongolia’s Sharkhuu Tumentsetseg showcased superior defence to keep the Indian at bay. Kakran lost by technical superiority.

This was India’s third medal from the wrestling contingent. Bajrang Punia (65kg) and Vinesh Phogat (50kg) had claimed gold medals in their respective events.

Kakran was a gold-winner at the Commonwealth Championships last year.
