35th WMC Wrestling – Tehran (IRI) – Competition Day 3




THERAN (IRI) – The third and penultimate day of competition of the 35th World Military Wrestling Championship was scheduled yesterday with the first categories of Greco-Roman wrestling (GR-55kg, GR-63kg, GR-72kg, GR-82kg and GR-97kg). And like yesterday, the results were identical, with two gold medals for Russia and Iran and one gold medal for Armenia.




In GR-55kg, only four participants were present in Tehran and were placed in a single pool.

Russian Viktor Vedernikov finished third.




Iran won its second title of the day after Eiman Mohammadi defeated Stepan Marianian of Russia in the GR-63kg final. In the bronze medal match, Lithuania's Justas Petravicius defeated Algeria's Laouni Abdnovr.




In GR-72kg, Karen Aslanyan gave the Armenian delegation its second gold medal of the tournament after defeating Russia's Stanislav Zaitsev in a very close final, while Lithuania's Sleiva Kristupas and Iran's Ashkan Saadatifar won bronze.




The Russian delegation won its first gold medal of the day after Shamil Ozhaev won another Iranian-Russian final against Jamale Esmaeili in GR-82kg. Greece won its first medal of the championship thanks to Georgios Privolarakis, who defeated Algeria's Abdelkarim Oukhali in the bronze medal match.




This penultimate day of competition concluded with a new Russian triumph with Aleksandr Golovin's express victory in the GR-97kg final against Iran's Mehdi Bali. Poland won a new bronze medal with Tadeusz Michalik, author of a superb performance against the Lithuanian Martynas Nemsevicius.
