Our wrestlers overall won 5 gold and 1 silver medal and opened a new page in the wrestling history of Azerbaijan. Our wrestlers reached the final round in 6 out of 8 weight categories and proved that the future of the team is in good hands. As a result they scored 59 points and came in first in the World Championship in the team ranking. Georgia ranked second and the Turkish team came in third.

We would like to remind our readers that our junior Greco-Roman wrestling team had also ranked first in the World Championship in Thailand in 2012, but then they had returned home with 3 gold and 1 bronze medal.
