Tamas Lorenc became the Olympic champion in the 77-kilogram wrestler category at the Tokyo Games, after defeating Kyrgyz Akzul Mahmudov 2-1 in Tuesday’s final.
The 34-year-old BHSE competitor crowned his career with success as he also took home the gold missing from his career after a world championship and four European titles. Nine years ago, he finished second at the London Games – still £66.
With the success of Tamás Lőrincz, he not only completed his collection of medals but also retired as the Olympic, World and European Champion in the weight class.
On Tuesday’s program, another Hungarian enters the carpet: the blonde Alex, who weighs 97 kilograms, will fight for the bronze medal with Poland’s Tadeusz Michalik.
