London, England: Mongolia won their first silver medal of the London Olympics on Thursday, when Tuvshinbayar Naidan battled his way through to the final of the men’s -100kg judo competition. But with his rival, Tagir Khaibulaev of Russia, cheered on by Russian President Vladimir Putin at the ExCeL Centre, the Mongolian gold medallist from Beijing 2008 was on the wrong end of an ippon.

Mongolia now has one silver and one bronze from London 2012. Also on Day Six, China won their 18th gold medal through Zhang Jike in the men’s table tennis singles, beating compatriot Wang Hao, and Korea’s Ki Bo-bae picked up her second gold in archery, adding the women’s individual title to the team gold.

China moved their medals total to 18-11-5-34, ahead of USA (18-9-10-37) on silver medals countback. Korea is third (7-2-5-14).
