Tokyo 2020: India wins silver in wrestling: What you need to know

Ravi Dahiya won silver in men's 57 kg wrestling. He was defeated by Zavur Uguev of Russia.

Ravi Kumar Dahiya became the second Indian wrestler to bag silver at the Olympic Games as he lost 4-7 to Russia's Zavur Uguev. The Russian, a two-time World Championships gold medalist, was just too strong for the Indian and despite his best efforts, he could not overpower the Russian at any given point in time.

Before Ravi, the four Indian wrestlers to have won medals at the Olympics are KD Jadhav (1952 Helsinki Games), Sushil Kumar (2008 Beijing Olympics,2012 London Games), Yogeshwar Dutt (2012 London Olympics) and Sakshi Malik (2016 Rio Olympic)
