View Details Hide Details
A bronze medal match in the men's 86kg freestyle wrestling division produced a controversial ending when U.S. wrestler J'den Cox was given the lead thanks to a video challenge with six seconds left. His Cuban opponent, Reineris Salas, was so upset that he refused to resume the bout and was disqualified. As a result, Cox earned Team USA's first medal in men's wrestling so far in Rio.
