GOLD COAST: Indian wrestler Mausam Khatri failed to make use of his wealth of experience as he settled for a silver medal after losing his final bout against South Africa’s Martin Erasmus in the men’s freestyle 97 kg event at the 21st Commonwealth Games here today.

The 27-year-old from Haryana couldn’t overpower 23-year-old Erasmus, who looked in better control and won the match by technical superiority after the scores were 12-2 in his favour at the Carrara Sports Arena here.

In the run-up to the final, Khatri had secured wins over Cyprus’ Alexios Kaouslidis in the 1/4 final and Nigeria’s Soso Tamarau in the semifinal.

A bronze medallist in the 2010 Asian Games, Khatri also won the Commonwealth Championship twice — in 2009 and 2011.

He also has a silver from last year’s edition at Johannesburg. PTI
