However, India have failed to win even a single medal from judo at the Incheon Games and Rajwinder's ouster by Kyrgyzstan's Nagira Sarbashova was the latest bad news for the contingent.

The 30-year-old was beaten by Mongolia's Javzmaa Odkhu in the +78 kg quarters and went into the repechage to fight for a place in the bronze medal match. (Read: Indian Men's Football Team Ousted)

The Kyrgyz athlete put in a dominant performance and defeated the Indian by Ippon with 'Kiken gachi'.
