The Junior World Wrestling Championship has finished in Zagreb, Croatia.

The junior freestylers in 55, 66, 84 and 120 kg weight classes joined the competition on the last day of the tournament. Our wrestlers completed the day with 1 silver medal.

In 55 kg weight class Mirjalal Hasanzadeh performed confidently until the final round, having scored victories by fall against Kazakhstani and Japanese wrestlers and with a great score against the Georgian sportsman. He then had quite an intense match against the representative from the USA, but managed to scrape a win.
