Yogeshwar qualified for the 2012 Olympics by winning a silver medal at an Asian qualification tournament in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Yogeshwar had to be content with the silver after losing the 60kg final to Iranian Mahmoud Masoud Esmaeilpour Jouybari (2-3, 0-1).

At the London Olympics, India would be looking for another stupendous feat from Yogeshwar, who performed creditably in the Beijing Olympics and had secured the fifth place in the 2006 World championship.
