Luong Thi Quyen pocketed a bronze medal at the Asian Wrestling Championship which wrapped up on May 22 in Tashkent , Uzbekistan.

Quyen's surprising success came after her 4-1 victory over Kazakhstani athlete Satymbekova in the women's 63kg repechage match.

Quyen previously beat host Gavhar Mirzayeva 5-2 in the first round but then lost 8-13 in the semi-finals to Kim Ran-mi of the Democratic People Republic of Korea.

Nguyen Thi Lua, who won a silver medal at the 16th ASIAD, failed to earn a medal after losing to Sun Yanan of China in the women's 48kg semi-finals while Nguyen Thi Dieu Ninh lost in the women's 55kg category./.
