Tashkent: Indian women grapplers continued their disappointing performance with three of them making yet another early exit in their respective weight categories on day four of the FILA World Championship, here yesterday.
While Men's Freestyle wrestling ended with none of the eight Indians making it to the podium, the women also failed to make a mark so far in the tournament. Two wrestlers crashed out in the qualifying round itself today, while one failed to progress beyond the first round of the main competition.
In Female Wrestling 75kg category, Bulgaria's Stanka Zlateva outplayed Anshu Tomar 5-0 in the Round of 16. Nirmala lost 0-5 in the qualifying round bout of 53kg Female Wrestling against Sumiya Erdenechimeg of Mongolia, failing to make it to the proper competition.
Another Indian in the fray, Sarita, also met with the same fate as she was defeated by Ecuador's Lisset Antes by a similar scoreline in the qualifying round of 58kg category.
