Navjot Kaur scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman to win gold at the Senior Asian Wrestling Championships here on Friday.
Navjot thrashed Japan's Miya Imai 9-1 in the final to emerge champion in the women's 65-kilogram category.
Olympic medallist Sakshi Malik took bronze in the women's 62kg category with a hard-fought 10-7 win in the play-off over Ayaulym Kassymova of Kazhakstan.
Navjot reached the finals after defeating Mongolia's Tsevegmed Enkhbayar 2-1 in the semi-finals. She clinched a two-point lead inside two minutes but it got reverted after Japan challenged the referee's decision and fought her way back into a break with a convincing 5-0 lead.
India now have a medal tally of one gold, one silver and four bronze in the competition.
