Risako Kawai gave Japan their fourth women’s wrestling gold of the Rio Games on Thursday with a victory over Mariya Mamashuk of Belarus in the championship match of the freestyle 63 kg category.

The 21-year-old, at her first Olympic, had the energy to spare after defeating the Belarusian 3-0 and slammed team leader Kazuhito Sakeo to the mat twice.

“Before the final, the coach said he wanted me to lift him on his shoulders,” Kawai told Japanese media. “The three wrestlers the previous day all won gold so they got to do that, and I said I wanted to be first to slam him and he let me do it.”
