Belarusian Greco-Roman wrestler Viktor Sosunovskiy won the silver medal of the 2015 UWW World Wrestling Championship being held in Las Vegas (USA), the correspondent of BELTA reports.
In the final match in the weight category up to 80 kg Viktor Sosunovskiy lost to the opponent from Turkey Selçuk Çebi with a score of 0:2. On the way to the award the Belarusian defeated four rivals.
In the first round he defeated the host of the mat, the representative of the USA Patrick Martinez (4:2). In the first bout of the starting match of the tournament Sosunovskiy was close to the defeat of his opponent by fall but the referees did not take such a decision in his favour. Viktor passed the second period in active defence and came out victorious from the duel without trouble. Then the Belarusian classic wrestler didn’t have any problems with the Lithuanian Julius Matuzevichus in the round of 16, wining with a score of 5:0. In the quarterfinal Sosunovskity was opposed by the athlete from Kazakstan Askhat Dilmukhamedov. The rivals showed a very interesting match, the first period of which was won by the Belarusian (2:0), in the second one the Kazakh equalized the score but a successful counter-attack brought Sosunovskiy final victory with a score of 3:2. In the semifinal our countryman was faced with the 2013 World champion, the Iranian Youssef Ahmad Ghaderian (3:3). By the end of the match the score was equal but Sosunovskiy was declared the winner by technical superiority. In the final Viktor met with resistance from the Turk Selçuk Çebi. Due to active attacks the latter won the right to choose a position in takedown three times but the Belarusian managed to defend himself. Alas, more active wrestling of Çebi brought in two points for him and the decider ended with a score of 2:0 in his favour.
The weight category in which Viktor Sosunovskiy won the silver medal at this World championship is non-Olympic, consequently a quota place for the 2016 Summer Games was not at stake. The Iranian Youssef Ahmad Ghaderian and the Georgian Lasha Gobadze became the bronze medallists of the planetary forum in the category up to 80 kg.
This year Viktor Sosunovsky also won the bronze medal of the 1st European Games in the weight category up to 80 kg.
Except for the silver of Sosunovskiy the Belarusian Greco-Roman wrestlers earned a quota place on the second day of the event. In the weight category up to 59 kg such success was achieved by Soslan Daurov who took fifth place and reached the match for the third place. At the early stages of the championships Daurov defeated the representative from Spain Albert Aghazaryan (8:4) and the Turk Hammet Rustem (8:0). In the round of 16 the Belarusian athlete suffered a heavy defeat to the Cuban Ismael Molina (0:8) but the further performance of his opponent provided him with a chance to participate in the repechage tournament. Daurov gained two victories with a crushing score in it.
He defeated the representative of the USA Mango Spenser - 8:0 and the Korean Seung-Hak Kim – 10:2. In the match for the bronze the representative of Belarus lost to the rival from Kazakhstan Almat Kebispayev when the score was levelled 4:4 by technical superiority.
