Four events were left in the last day of the judo competition today and the Indians put up a dominating show once again to finish on a high.

Avatar Singh took just 49 seconds from the stipulated five minutes to prevail over his Afghan opponent Mohammad Ismail Kakar en route to the gold medal in the men's under 90kg.

Pooja, on the other hand, overcame a strong challenge from Beenish Khan of Pakistan in an evenly-contested duel before the Indian sealed off the issue in 3:03 minutes from the stipulated four in women's U-70kg.

Women's U-78kg was tricky as there was only four contestants and Aruna (200 points) was edged out by by gold medallist Fouzia Mumtaz (210) of Pakistan in a round-robin league. It was the fifth battle of the day between the two rivals, and Mumtaz clinched the issue in just four minutes.
Pitted against Shah Hussain Shah in the men's U-100kg final, Shubham Kumar simply lost against the celebrated Pakistani, who won in just one minute and 29 seconds to clinch the gold.
