SPORT-SAG-IND 2 LAST

first_img(REOPENS DEL 48) (REOPENS DEL 48) The only scare India endured was when Sarita Devi, returning to competitive ring after her one-year ban following the infamous Asian Games meltdown, faced a stiff challenge from another Lankan opponent in M Vidushika Prabadhi. The Incheon bronze-medallist overwhelmed the Lankan in the first two rounds but her opponent came back strongly in the third with some powerful blows leading to Sarita falling twice before the Indian won by a narrow 39-36 margin to be adjudged unanimous winner 3-0. However, Pooja ended the campaign in style when she overwhelmed Nilanthi Andaraweer by a TKO in a bout lasting only one round. The judokas too showed good form, bagging two gold and two silver medals to finish on top at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor sports hall here. Four events were held on the last day of the judo competition and the Indians put up a dominating show once again to finish on a high. Avatar Singh took just 49 seconds from the stipulated five minutes to prevail over his Afghan opponent Mohammad Ismail Kakar en route to the gold medal in the mens under 90kg. Pooja, on the other hand, overcame a strong challenge from Beenish Khan of Pakistan in an evenly-contested duel before the Indian sealed off the issue in 3:03 minutes from the stipulated four in womens U-70kg. Womens U-78kg was tricky as there were only four contestants and Aruna (200 points) was edged out by gold medallist Fouzia Mumtaz (210) of Pakistan in the round-robin league. It was the fifth battle of the day between the two rivals, and Mumtaz clinched the issue in just four minutes. Pitted against Shah Hussain Shah in the mens U-100kg final, Shubham Kumar simply lost against the celebrated Pakistani, who won in just one minute and 29 seconds to clinch the gold. Indian judokas emerged overall winners with nine gold, three silver from 12 disciplines to push Pakistan (2-2-8) and Nepal (1-2-6) to second and third places, respectively.
