Shohei Yabiku overcame a slow start to dominate the second period of his 77-kilogram Greco-Roman bronze medal match and defeat Iran’s Mohammadali Geraei 13-3 on Tuesday, while compatriot Yukako Kawai guaranteed at least a silver in the women’s 62-kg division.

Sara Dosho, the 2016 champion, missed out on a medal, losing her 68-kg bronze medal match to Ukraine’s Alla Cherkasova by fall 2 minutes, 33 seconds into their match at Chiba’s Makuhari Messe Hall, east of Tokyo.
