The Junior European Wrestling Championship is held in Istanbul, Turkey.

On the first day of the Greco-Roman wrestling competition Nofel Babayev (59 kg) and Orkhan Nuriyev (96 kg) won a gold medal each.

Greco-Roman wrestlers competed in 55, 66, 84 and 120 kg weight classes on the last day of the championship. Our athletes completed the day with 1 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze medal.

In 55 kg weight class Murad Mammadov consequently won against the sportsmen representing Germany, Hungary and Ukraine. Giving no chances to the Armenian athlete in the semifinal bout, Murad proceeded into the final round. This time he lost to the Georgian wrestler and thus Murad Mammadov became the silver medalist of the European Championship.

Our wrestler in 66 kg category Ruhin Mikayilov started off well. He consequently won against sportsmen from Slovakia, Georgia and Armenia, but then lost to the Turkish representative in the semifinal bout. His rival in the decisive match for the bronze medal was the Bulgarian athlete. Scoring a full victory, our wrestler became the owner of the bronze medal of the European Championship.

Another one of our wrestlers, who proceeded into the final round was Islam Abbasov, competing in 84 kg weight class. Last year’s European and World junior champion gave no chances to his rivals. First winning against the Turkish and Swedish sportsmen, Islam then scored a victory against the Armenian wrestler in the semifinal round. He then fought against the Russian athlete in the final bout. Securing another win, Islam became the European Champion.
