Nice performance from Kristupas Šleiva to come away with a bronze medal! :clap:

 

This is only the fourth World championships medal for Lithuania ever. 

 

With a European Championship bronze in 2020 as well, he could perhaps be a solid threat in Paris?

4 gold medals for 4 different countries in the first day of Greco finals. the great Roman Vlasov saved the day for Russia, they won only 1 gold and lost two other finals to Armenia and Japan. the last gold of the day went to Azerbaijan.

 

Russia is almost secured the team title :( but it was a better day for Iran. 3 of our wrestlers from yesterday managed to win the bronze medal. Mokhtari (who I was considering a gold medal chance) was terrible and lost like a baby.

 

but most importantly we brought two wrestlers to the final for tomorrow, in heavier weights. and both of them will be huge favorites for the gold. (even though nothing is guaranteed in Greco) the last time we had a finalist in World Greco-Roman Championship was 2015 :yikes: (we had an Olympic Champion 2 months ago though)

It is also Šleiva's first appearance in senior world championships! What a great start.

Russia already won the Greco team title but it was a good day for Iran, winning 2 gold medals :champion: and sending 2 other wrestlers to the final for tomorrow.

I hope they finish with 4 gold medals (and 7 gold overall) but even with that Russia is still going to win the team title because 3 of wrestlers got eliminated early and received no team classification points.

Iran finished the Greco-Roman competition with 4 gold medals which is our best ever result :champion: yet Russia won the team title with just 1 gold medal. :( they had lots of silver and bronze medals

 

despite (unfortunately) not having female wrestlers Iran still topped the overall medal table with 7 gold medals

 

while lots of big stars were missing here (for obvious reasons, being too close to the Olympics) but still it was a great tournament for Iran, most of our wrestlers are U23, some of them are under 20. interestingly we brought all of our 4 Olympic medalists and they all ended up winning the gold medal.
