London Olympics bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt would look to replicate his feat in Rio Olympics and end India’s campaign on a high as he is all set to participate on India’s last day at the biggest sporting extravaganza.

So far India has won two medals- Sakshi Mali’s bronze in wrestling and PV Sindhu’s historic silver in women’s singles badminton. With India sending its biggest contingent in Olympics this year, Dutt winning a medal will be a perfect ending to the games.

If Dutt wins his first match, he  will most probably face Russia’s Soslan Ramonov – 2014 worlds gold and 2015 bronze winner in the quarter-final. If he gets past him, he could meet Uzbek’s Ikhtoyor Navruzov – reigning silver medallist – in semis.

After Narsingh Yadav’s dreams of representing India in Rio were shattered following his 4-year ban, expectations are high from Dutt and we hope that he succeeds in bringing the third medal for the nation.

Here is the full schedule:

Wrestling (Men) 65 kg freestyle:
17:00 hrs:

All eyes will be on Yogeshwar Dutt who will be looking to win his second Olympics medal.

Athletics (Men’s marathon):
18:00 hrs:
Three soldiers from the Army Sports Institute, Nitender Singh Rawat, T Gopi and Kheta Ram will conclude India’s participation at the Rio Olympics.
