Rio Olympics 2016: Japan's Sara Dosho wins -69kg freestyle wrestling gold

Sara Dosho made it three Olympic women's freestyle wrestling golds from three for Japan at Rio 2016 as she beat defending champion Nataliya Vorobyova in the -69kg final.

Dosho, 21, drew with Russia's Vorobyova in the final, but won on countback.

That wrapped up a fantastic night for Japan, after Kaori Icho became the first woman to win individual gold medals at four consecutive Olympics.

Elmira Syzdykova of Kazakhstan and Swede Jenny Fransson won -69kg bronzes.
