India’s Ravi Dahiya lost to Russian Olympic Committee’s Zavur Uguev in the final of Men’s 57kg wrestling at the Tokyo 2020 to claim silver medal. Dahiya flew under the radar for most of the Olympic build-up with the likes of Bajrang Punia, Deepak Punia and Vinesh Phogat in the spotlight as potential medal winners for the country in Tokyo. But, Dahiya made short work of his opponents in the preliminary and quarters before making stunning comeback against Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakistan. 

Here are the memorable moments from the match:
