October 07, 2023 15:28Wrestling: Deepak Punia wins silver medal in men’s 86kg freestyle
Yazdani scores the first point against Deepak with a ‘push out.’ Deepak concedes another point in the same manner and also receives a caution this time. He will now lay in a passive position. Chance for Yazdani to score some more points but he is unable to flip the Indian.
Yazdani is racing towards the gold medal as he takes an 8-0 lead.
Yazdani takes down Deepak but luckily for the Indian, the round ends just before the move could count.
But the relief does not last long as Yazdani takes him down in the first 30 seconds of the second round to stretch his lead to 10-0 and defend his gold medal via technical superiority.
Deepak Punia takes the silver.

October 07, 2023 14:50
Naveen gets away with the final point and the whistle goes off. The men’s kabaddi team wins the gold amid extraordinary circumstances (33-29). You have to feel for the young Iranians. Some of them are still protesting but the game is done and dusted.
October 07, 2023 14:49The kabaddi match is underway!
As per the new IKF (International Kabaddi Federation) rule, India has been given three points and Iran receives one point.
October 07, 2023 14:43A breakdown of what happened at kabaddi, where the gold medal match has been suspended.
– With just over a minute remaining in the match, Pawan Sehrawat from the Indian team was forced to go in for a do-or-die raid.
– During his raid, Pawan went out of bounds without making contact with any Iranian defender.
– In response, Amirhossein Bastami and three other Iranian defenders rushed towards Pawan in an attempt to push him out.
– This led to a moment of confusion, as it was unclear whether Pawan had been successfully tackled or not.
– Initially, Iran was awarded a point for their efforts to stop Pawan.
– However, the Indian contingent, including players and officials, began arguing with the on-court umpire and the TV officials.
– After further review and perhaps another referral, the officials decided to award four points to India. It’s mentioned that the number of points could vary depending on the number of players who went out with Pawan.
– This decision led to protests from the Iranian team.
– The final decision seems to be based on both old and new rules. According to the old rule, India would get four (or possibly five) points, while the new rule would give one point to each team because one of the Iranian defenders (Bastami) went out of the line (self-out).
October 07, 2023 14:35India wins cricket gold!
The match has been called off due to rain. While everyone here would’ve wanted a full game, I don’t think India would be the one to complain. The men’s team completes the set, as was expected. The women’s team had won the gold before.
October 07, 2023 14:15It’ll be a long wait by the looks of it!
The referees are trying to play peacemakers but nobody is willing to listen. The players sit like a rock on the mat even as the coaches continue to be in conversation. The match has been suspended until further notice.

October 07, 2023 13:50Kabaddi – drama in the men’s final
With scores tied 28-28, it was a Do-or-die raid for India. Pawan has been dashed out. So Iran will get a point in defence, but Pawan says he went out of bounds without any touch, which means India might get a few points as Iran’s defenders also went out with him. After a 10-minute long referral, India is awarded FOUR points but Iran is protesting it.
