Shingo Matsumoto failed in his bid to become the first Japanese to win a medal in men’s Greco-Roman wrestling in 10 years at the world championships after defeat in the 84-kg quarterfinals Saturday.

Matsumoto was beaten by Ukrainian Oleksandr Daragan on a disappointing day for Japan as Masaki Imuro and Yuki Iwasaki fell at the first hurdle in the 66-kg and 74-kg competitions.
