On the other hand, Naveen entered the bronze medal match after defeating World No. 4 Syrbaz Talgat of Uzbekistan by 11-3 in the opening round of the 70kg repechage.

Naveen’s victory put him straight into the bronze medal match as his next-round opponent Ilyas Bekbulatov from Uzbekistan was not able to compete due to injury. But eventually, he also lost to Kyrgyzstan’s Ernazar Akmataliev in the bronze medal match.
