Latvian freestyle wrestler Anastasija Grigorjeva on Wednesday advanced to the Olympic bronze medal final in the 62 kilo and under competition in Tokyo.

Grigorjeva defeated Romania's Kriszta Tunde Incze early in the dzay 14:7 but later lost out to Ukraine's Irina Koliadenko in the bronze elimination competition and finished the games in a highly creditable 5th place.

This is the third Olympics for the 31-year-old Grigorjeva, who finished 9th in the London and 8th in Rio de Janeiro.
