One of India’s brightest medal hopes, wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt’s journey in Rio Olympics got over in just six minutes, losing to Mongolia’s Mandakhnaran Ganzorigiin in his  very first bout. Dutt, who won a bronze medal at the London Olympics four years ago, was always going to face difficulty in this Olympics as the world wrestling body had merged the 60kg category, in which he won at London, with the 66kg to make for a 65 kg class.

The hope was for Ganzorigiin to make it to the final, so that Dutt gets a shot at bronze medal through the repechage. That, however, did not happen, with the Mongolian losing to Russia’s Soslan Ramonov in the third round.

As expected fans were disappointed and took to Twitter to express their frustration on the wrestler. Here are some of the reactions:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
