The Senior World Wrestling Championship continues in Tashkent, capital of Uzbekistan.

Our wrestlers won 1 silver and 1 bronze medal on the fifth day of the championship. The bronze medalist Elvin Mursaliyev shared his impressions with the tournament:

“This was my first world championship and I am happy to have won a medal. I could have wrestled in the final, but I made certain mistakes and could not reach the final round. Both my rival and I wrestled as hard as we could in the decisive match, so the bout was very tense. I won two bronze medals this year, one at the European Championship, and one today at the World Championship. I am happy that I could appreciate the chance I was given and lived up to the hopes of the federation and my coaches.”
