Lepakshi emerges champion

Covering it up.

Lepakshi defeated Neha Karve of Belgaum to win the title. Lack of proper medical aid was apparent as one of the contestants got injured during a bout. A handkerchief came in handy to cover the injury before first-aid arrived.

Denying any slackness on their part, Karnataka Judo Association secretary SR Shivananda told Deccan Herald, “First-aid facilities were available and the judoka was attended to right after the incident.

“We take a lot of care when it comes to such things,” added Shivananda. “I can assure you that the judoka was taken care of right then and there.” It was a view seconded by Ajay Kumar Sarnaik, the president of KJA.
