LONDON, August 1 (RIA Novosti)
Colombia’s Yuri Alvear and Dutch judoka Edith Bosch won the bronze medals in the women’s 70 kilogram judo category Wednesday after both coming through the repechage.
Alvear took bronze by waza-ari against China’s Fei Chen, while Bosch won her medal on a referee’s decision after finishing level with South Korea’s Ye-Sul Hwang on one yuko each.
For Bosch, it was her second Olympic bronze in two Games after she received the same prize in Beijing four years ago.
