It is a crucial day for Indian wrestling as four of our star wrestlers compete for a chance to stand on the podium. Anshu Malik gets a chance at redemption as she qualifies for the repechage bout after Iryna Kurachkina went through to the finals. She faces a tough road to the bronze as she goes head to head with the ROC's Valeria Koblova.

Deepak Punia advanced to the bronze medal match after a disappointing loss to the USA's Taylor. He will be facing either Shabanau Ali of Belarus or Amine Myles Nazem of San Marino.

Ace wrestler Vinesh Poghat, from the legendary Poghat family, aims to kick off her campaign for gold with a dominant display against Sweden's Sofia Mattson.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya stunned the audience watching with an impressive comeback in the semifinals to qualify for the finals. He now faces the ROC's Uguev Zavur with the chance of etching his name in Olympic history.
