Well, that was all from this LIVE blog 

Vinesh Phogat loses her quarter-final match against Belarus' Vanesa Kaladzinskaya by fall. She was just not good enough today. She got a strong start in the first round but the quarterfinals ended all hopes of a gold medal from the 26-year-old. She now awaits her fate. If Vanesa wins her semifinal bout then Vinesh will be competing in the repechage round, for a bronze medal. 

There is still a lot of action for the Indian fans to look forward to. There are two Indian wrestlers, Deepak Punia and Ravi Kumar Dahiya, who could still secure medals for India. You can catch all the action from Tokyo Olympics on Sportskeeda.
