Sakshi Malik loses in opening round of World C'ships

Thursday - September 19, 2019 2:12 pm , Category : SPORTS
Nur-Sultan (Kazakhastan), Sep 19 (IANS) Ace wrestler Sakshi Malik on Thursday came out with a disappointing performance as she lost 7-10 to Aminat Adeniyi of Nigeria in the opening round of the women's freestyle 62-kg weight category at the ongoing World Wrestling Championships.
The Olympic bronze medallist was slow to get off the blocks and conceded a 0-6 lead before scoring her first take down. She did fight back in the second round but the gap was too big to fill as she eventually lost 7-10.
Sakshi will now have to pray that Adeniyi manages to reach the final so that she can have a shot at the bronze medal via repechage.
Earlier, Divya Kakran also had a difficult opening bout against Olympic champion Sara Dosho of Japan as she lost the bout 0-2 in the 68-kg weight category.
Divya would be hoping that Dosho reaches the final and she can make it to the repechage round.
