Davit Gevorgyan at 74 kg placed 3rd at the 24th Stepan Sargsyan Freestyle Wrestling International Tournament held in Vanadzor on July 23-24. The young wrestler told the ANOC press service it was his second participation in the tournament.
“The competition was high as my weight class is Olympic. I spent my first fight normally but my rival was strong and I lost (later Magomedkhabib Kadimagomedov became the tournament winner). He reached the final and I won the Kazakh wrestler in the repechage round and then the Russian wrestler in the fight for the third position. I’m pleased with my result and I’m preparing for the World Youth Championship. It was a great experience for me on the eve of the championship because it was an adults’’ tournament and I have much to learn”, said Davit.
At the end he added he was going to the Youth Championship in anticipation of a victory.
“I’m going to try to win a gold medal”, he concluded.
Slavik Galstyan at 63 kg will wrestle for a bronze medal and his opponent will be Iran’s Meysam Dalkhani.
