Three-time Olympic champion Saori Yoshida will double as a coach for the Japanese national women’s wrestling team in the lead-up to the 2020 Tokyo Games, a wrestling source said Friday.

Yoshida, who fell short of a four-peat at the Rio Olympics as she settled for the silver medal in the women’s freestyle 53-kg category, will continue to compete as well, the source told Kyodo News.
