Yogeshwar clinched the bronze medal in the men's 60kg category at the ExCel Arena to give the country its fifth Olympic medal from the London Games here Saturday.
Yogeshwar's medal lifted the gloom after South Africa gave the finishing touches to India's disastrous campaign in the Olympic men's hockey competition with a 3-2 win in the classification match for 11-12 positions here Saturday.
In athletics, Basanta Bahadur Rana created a national record but that could only ensure him a 36th place in the men's 50km walk at the London Olympics here Saturday. Rana took three hours, 56 minutes and 48 seconds to complete the race.
