The European U-23 Wrestling Championship continues in the Polish city of Walbrzych. Sportsmen, aged 19-23, can take part in the European U-23 Championship, which is held for the first time.

The women wrestlers competed in 53, 58, 63 and 75 kg weight classes on the fourth day of the championship. Our team was represented in three weight classes.

In 53 kg weight class Solmaz Hashimzadeh, who won the bronze medal at last year’s world junior championship, joined the competition from 1/8 final. She consequently won against her rivals from Spain and Romania, but then lost to the Ukrainian sportswoman in the semifinal. She held a very intense bout against her Bulgarian colleague for the bronze medal and managed to win. Thus, she became the bronze medalist of the European U-23 Championship.

Our representative in 63 kg category and the silver medalist of the European Junior Championship Elmira Gambarova started off with a victory against the Russian sportswoman with great superiority. However, she lost to the wrestler from the Czech Republic and still had a chance to win the bronze medal. Giving no chances to the Polish sportswoman, Elmira ranked third in the European Championship and won the bronze medal.

The World and European junior champion Sabira Aliyeva (75 kg) started off on the wrong foot. She lost her first bout against the local sportswoman, but received a chance to fight for the bronze medal as her rival reached the final round. She had to win against the Hungarian wrestler. But this bout as well was not successful for our sportswoman and Sabira completed the championship in 5th position.

We would like to note that on the first day of female wrestling within the championship, the member of our national team Alyona Kolesnik (55 kg) won a gold medal.
