Alka, five others to fight for bronze medal

Tomar (59kg), the 2006 Asian Games bronze medallist, made an impressive start to her campaign by registering a 8-0 victory in straight periods over Thailand’s Wailaiwan Thongkam but lost her semifinal bout to Chinese Liu Fengming.

She now gets a shot at bronze through the Repechage round when she battles Kazakhstan’s Miruyert Dynbayeva.

Nirmala Devi, who lost in the first round to eventual finalist Zhao Shasha of China in the 48kg Freestyle category, will contest the Repechage round against Sim-Hyang So of North Korea.
