The European U-23 Wrestling Championship has finished in the Polish city of Walbrzych. Sportsmen, aged 19-23, took part in the European U-23 Championship, which was held for the first time.

The Greco-Roman wrestlers in 66, 75, 85 and 130 kg weight classes joined the competition on the final day of the championship.

The World and European junior champion in 85 kg weight class Islam Abbasov started off with consequent victories against the Ukrainian and Swedish wrestlers. However, he then lost to the German sportsman, but received a second chance to join the repechage match as his rival reached the final round. The neck to neck match against the Russian sportsman finished in Islam’s favor and he joined the fight for the bronze medal. The victory against the Bulgarian sportsman brought our wrestler the bronze medal of the championship.
