According to the number of medals gaining in this wrestling discipline in Rio-de-Janeiro our wrestlers shared first row with Russia – 9 medals of each. Freestyle wrestling team on number of gaining medals became first.

Gaining in 1996 in Atlanta 1 silver, in 2000 in Sydeny 1 gold, in 2004 in Athens 1 gold, in 2008 in Beijing 2 silver and 2 bronze, overall 4 medals, in 2012 in London 2 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze, overall 7 medals, in Rio-de-Janeiro getting 3 silver and 6 bronze medals, overall 9 medals opened new page in the history of our wrestling.

Having looked at the statistics we would observe growth of gaining medals at the top event of the 4 years every time. The only missing this time was gold medal. We believe in the future our wrestlers showing more decisiveness will do their best to improve quality of the medals and as always will rise our flag and sound our anthem.

Gaining these achievements, expediently work conducting by the governance of AWF and proper activity gives us a chance to look to the future positively. Then we intend to show better results in the next Sumer Olympic Games will be held in 4 years in Tokyo. So, good bye Rio-de-Janeiro and see you, Tokyo!
