Of eight Belarusian representatives at European Wrestling Championship in Finnish Vantaa, only Alexander Demyanovich claims a medal: bronze (under 71kg)

Alexander Demyanovich began by defeating Varsham Boranyan of Armenia (8:6) in the preliminary round. In the 1/8 finals, the Belarusian didn’t leave his French rival any chance, crushing Artak Margaryan (5:0) and pinning him for final victory. In the quarterfinals, Demyanovich lost to Hungarian Tamбs Lőrincz (0:10) in the first 15 seconds of the match, after being pinned by his opponent. The Hungarian went on to take gold in European Greco-Roman Wrestling.

Alexander then defeated Aleksandar Maksimović of Serbia (5:1) and beat Russian Chingiz Labazanov. After initially being down 0:2, he equalised the score and then celebrated victory (4:2). He shares bronze in the under 71kg category with Turkish Yunus Цzel while silver went to Rasul Chunaev of Azerbaijan.

The championship is the third in Alexander Demyanovich’s career. Last year, he fought for bronze but ended in fifth place.

Freestyle Belarusian wrestlers took four medals: Murad Gaidarov (86kg), Maria Mamoshuk (63kg) and Vasilisa Marzalyuk (75kg) claimed silver while Ivan Yankovsky (97kg) won bronze.

The World Wrestling Championship will be hosted by Tashkent in September.
