Rio Olympian Sandeep Tomar failed to reach the bronze medal play-offs after losing his second repechage bout on Friday, even as Indian grapplers continued to struggle in the World Wrestling Championships. India remained medal-less on the fifth and penultimate day of the competition. Tomar (57kg), along with Harphool (61kg), lost in the Round of 16 but the former got fortunate to get a repechage when his opponent from Japan made the finals.
