Another fifth place in Bucharest – the Hungarian delegation finished the European Wrestling Championship with three medals

Murat Kuramagomedov lost the bronze medal match to Imam Ganisov, who competed in neutral colors, finishing fifth in the 74-kilogram freestyle category, and thus the Hungarian delegation concluded the European Wrestling Championships in Bucharest with three bronze medals (and five fifth places).

On Saturday, the wrestler from Tatabanya reached the semi-finals by defeating Israeli Mitchell Venisilver and Romanian Cristian Pirro, but he lost there to three-time European champion and Olympic bronze medalist Soner Demirtas from Turkey, so he was able to occupy third place. A place on the final day of the European Championships.

The Dagestani freestyle player clashed with the Russian Imam Ganisov on the podium, with whom he engaged in a constant, fruitless battle at the beginning of the match. The opponent was somewhat more active, although he did not have a chance to take action as well, but he managed to force Kuramagomedov to take action in the middle of the stage due to his passivity.

During the 30-second activity time, the Hungarian athlete was supposed to score a point, but his opponent launched a dynamic attack, and Kuramagomedov tried to turn around, but could not make the save, so he gained a two-point advantage by standing behind Ganisov.

The referee suggested two points for the takedown and one for the escape, but the jury only deemed the first point justified, while the Russian coach objected to this and called for a video referee, which favored Kuramagomedov. Since the complaint was rejected, the Hungarians have gained one point (1-2).

Thus, Ganisov had only one point left, and the score did not change until the break and until the end of the second round. Because Kuramagomedov could not take any action, and his opponent focused mainly on defense. The Hungarian wrestler took more and more risks as time progressed and attacked his legs with just ten seconds left in the match, but Janisov slipped out of his hands and overpowered him, eventually losing Kuramagomedov 4-1 and finishing in fifth place.

Thus, the Hungarian team completed its performance in the Romanian capital, where it won three bronze medals thanks to Bernadette Nagy (76 kg), Ismail Muszukaev (70 kg), and Vladislav Bagkaev (97 kg).
