At the start of the match, Mongolia’s Mandakhnaran Ganzorig was leading by by seven points to six against Uzbekistan’s Ikhtiyor Navruzov in the 65kg freestyle wrestling with 18 seconds to go in the bronze medal match. However, the judges then adjusted the score to 7-7, penalising the Mongolian for ‘fleeing the hold’, or refusing to engage with his opponent. A further point was then added to the Uzbek's score after the Mongolians' challenge was rejected, thereby handing the bronze medal to Navruzov.
