J'den Cox loses close match in 86kg wrestling semifinals

View Details Hide Details
Turkey's Selim Yasar ended U.S. wrestler J'den Cox's run just one match short of the 86kg freestyle gold medal bout. The match ended in a 1-1 score (before a challenge gave an extra point to Yasar) but Yasar held the advantage because of tiebreaking criteria. Cox admitted later that he didn't realize he was actually losing at the end of the match.
