Asian Games wushu Sanda: Roshibina Devi wins silver in women's 60kgtext_fields
Hangzhou: Naorem Roshibina Devi of India left the Asian Games with a silver medal after losing 0-2 to local heavyweight Wu Xiaowei in the women's 60kg wushu sanda final on Thursday.
The Indian struggled against Wu Xiaowei, the current champion in the category, which allowed the Chinese to get off to a solid start.
Wu was declared the winner by the judges after two rounds.
Trying to get her opponent off the mat, the local favourite had an aggressive first round and began with a splendid takedown of Roshibina.
The Manipuri athlete tried to bounce back and got her hold of Wu's leg to push her out to the edges but was unsuccessful as round one belonged to the Chinese who had a 1-0 lead.
A watchful Wu sealed the issue with an attack on Roshibina Devi's torso in the second round.
Roshibina had won a bronze in the 2018 edition at Jakarta.
