Additional information

CONTROVERSIAL
Initially refused to accept her bronze medal following her semifinal defeat to local favourite, PARK Ji Na (KOR), at the Incheon 2014 Asian Games. After taking it, walked around the podium and placed it around PARK’s neck. PARK tried to give back the medal, but when DEVI did not accept it, the Korean placed it on the podium and left. "I didn’t deserve a bronze. I deserved at least a silver, but they cheated me so I gave it back. I am now relieved, otherwise this bitter issue will torment me." As a result, was banned for a year.
