Sakshi Malik wins Bronze Medal in Rio Olympic 2016

Woman wrestler Sakshi Malik wins India's first Rio Olympic Bronze Medal by clinching the bronze in the 58kg category, pulling off a sensational 8-5 victory over Aisuluu Tynybekova in the Play-off bout. The 23-year-old from Rohtak became only the fourth woman athlete from India to win an Olympic medal as she earned the dramatic win after falling behind 0-5 in the do-or-die bout on day 12. Weightlifter Karnam Malleshwari (2000, Sydney), boxer MC Mary Kom (2012, London) and shuttler Saina Nehwal(2012, London) were the only other women players from India to have won a medal in Olympics.  Like in three of the four other bouts earlier in the day, Sakshi won the crucial bout after coming from behind. 
She, in fact, had lost 2-9 in the quarter-finals to Russia's Valeriia Koblova in the fifth bout of the day before getting a second chance in repechage when her conqueror reached the final.  Sakshi's victory brought cheers to the Indian contingent that had endured agonising 11 days without a medal.  Sakshi turned the tables on the Kyrgyzstan wrestler in the dying seconds of the bout as Tynybekova was in complete command in most part of the clash.  Tynybekova grabbed Sakshi's leg and quickly earned two points before adding one more for the Indian's passivity.  In the bronze play-off too Sakshi's winning move that got her two points initially was challenged by her Kyrgyztan rival and it was reviewed and she was awarded an extra point by the judges much to her rival's chagrin.  With just 10 seconds remaining, Sakshi desperately needed one more point to post a win and she held her nerves as she took down the Swedish girl in those dying moments to post a narrow victory.
