India rejoiced over their fifth medal at the London Olympics as wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt claimed the Bronze medal in the Menâ€™s 60kg freestyle wrestling. The 29 year old amazingly fought through three bouts in less than an hour as part of the repechage round. Duttâ€™s decisive victory for the bronze came against North Korean Jong Myong Ri, whom he beat 3-1. He also defeated his previous opponent Iranâ€™s Masoud Esmaeilpoorjouybari 3-1 in the 2nd round before which he had ousted Franklin Gomez Matos 3-0 in the 1st round.
Dutt isnâ€™t new to the medal scene as he had collected gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and also the 2003 Commonwealth Wrestling Championship. His hopes of glory at the London games were seemingly dashed after he was beaten by finalist Besik Kudukhov in the pre-quarterfinal round.
