Colombia’s Yuri Alvear and Dutch judoka Edith Bosch won the bronze medals in the women’s 70 kilogram judo category Wednesday after both coming through the repechage.

Alvear took bronze by waza-ari against China’s Fei Chen, while Bosch won her medal on a referee’s decision after finishing level with South Korea’s Ye-Sul Hwang on one yuko each.

For Bosch, it was her second Olympic bronze in two Games after she received the same prize in Beijing four years ago.
