Tokyo/IBNS: Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar Dahiya on Thursday won an Olympic silver medal after losing to Russian two-time defending world champion Zavur Uguev in 57 kg bout.

The ROC wrestler clinched the gold medal with a 7-4 win against Dahiya.

Expectations ran high for the 23-year-old Indian to become the youngest Olympic champion but the Russian showed superior techniques to win comfortably.

At first, Ravi Dahiya lagged 0-2, but bounced back and levelled the score. However, the round finished with Uguev leading 4-2.

Uguev then scored a flurry of points to 7-2 lead. Dahiya made a comeback back with 2 more points but failed to overturn the 3-point gap in the end.

He lost the bout, but gave the Russian a tough fight.
