The three-time CWG gold-medalist overpowered her Swedish opponent to win the match 8-0. She had won two of her repechage matches against Asian Games silver-medallist Zhuldyz Eshimova of Kazakhstan in the first repechage round and Azerbaijan’s Leyla Gurbanova. Gurbanova withdrew due to an injury.

Phogat, a 2019 world championships bronze medalist, was handed a shocking 7-0 defeat by 2022 Asian championships silver medalist Khulan Batkhuyag of Mongolia in the qualification round on Tuesday. Repechage round wins helped her get back into the competition and secure a medal.

This is her second bronze medal at the Championships. She had previously earned a podium position in the 2019 edition of the tournament at Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

She has opened her country’s medal tally at the 2022 edition of the championships.
