But Valeria Koblova, who had also lost to Iryna and was also to play in the repechage rounds as she had lost the eventual finalist, proved too strong for Anshu as she emerged 5-1 winner.
The Russian wrestler started well and won a point and though Anshu levelled the score at 1-1, Valeria could not be denied as she won the bout played on Mat B at the Makuhari Messe Hall.
