Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medallist Sakshi Malik had won six Asian medals without earning gold, and she was left searching after being defeated in the 65kg final via fall by Mongolia’s Bolortungalag Zorigt, for whom this was a first title after three bronze medals.

India might have had a shot at a sweep of the day's five golds, but rising star Sonam Sonam, who has also qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, had to default her matches at 62kg due to a knee injury suffered last week.

The Championships now conclude with two days of freestyle wrestling.
