The United World Wrestling has announced the new rating list for Greco-Roman wrestling according to the results of the tournaments, held in February 2015. 10 of our Greco-Roman wrestlers have been included in the rankings.

Our Greco-Romans opened a new page in our wrestling history after their last month’s performance at the World Cup tournament. Thus they have also achieved significant success in the rating standings. Rasul Chunayev (71 kg) and Rafig Husseinov (80 kg) both ranked first in the February ratings according to their results at the World Cup. We would like to note that Rafig Husseinov won all 4 of his bouts and scored a victory against the silver medalist of last year’s World Championship Eugene Saleyev in the final round. Rasul Chunayev scored victories in all 3 bouts he held, winning against the World Champion Chingiz Labazanov in the decisive match.

The world silver medalist Saman Tahmasibi (85 kg) and the world bronze owner Elvin Mursaliyev (75 kg) have both preserved their spots. They have ranked 2nd and 5th accordingly. Hasan Aliyev (66 kg), who ranked 5th in the World Championship, moved up two spots according to his results at the World Cup and thus holds the 5th position in the rating list. The successful performance at the World Cup also helped Islam Abbasov (85 kg) to move from the 13th spot to the 8th.
