Russian Musa Evloev shared his impressions after becoming a two-time world wrestling champion at 97 kg.
In the final of the World Championship underway in Kazakh capital Nur-Sultan the Russian wrestler had to wrestle against Rio 2016 Olympic gold medalist, three-time world and four-time European champion Artur Aleksanyan who refused to fight in the final match because of an injury and won a silver medal.
"I was in best shape in the World Championship and I'm so sorry I didn't spend the final bout. I had prepared for the bout against Artur Aleksanyan for a long time though last year I defeated him in the World Championship. I wish him a quick recovery. I didn't know he would refuse to fight till the last moment. We already have Olympic qualifications but there is great rivalry at home and we need to overcome this phase. I hope I'll represent Russia at the Olympic Games. I'm ready to do everything to get to Tokyo and win the Games," Musa Evloev said.
This year the Armenian Basketball Championship was attended by 6 teams from Yerevan, Gyumri and Stepanakert.
