Sunday, April 3, 2022 - 14:37 By Eric Olanowski
BUDAPEST, Hungary (April 3) --- For the last time in Budapest, we welcome you back to the Bok Sports Hall for the 2022 European Championships. We’ll crown the final five champs at 60kg, 67kg, 72kg, 82kg and 97kg.
The 60kg finals will be must-watch tv between two of the weights most offensives wrestlers in the world, ’20 European champ Edmond NAZARYAN (BUL) and Kerem KAMAL (TUR).
Kamal has grabbed European titles at the Cadet, Junior, and U23 age-groups, but has fell in back-to-back senior-level European gold-medal matches.
You’ll see Hungary’s first finalist at 67kg, where VANCZA Krisztian (HUN) will square off against returning European bronze medalist Murat FIRAT (TUR).
The second Hungarian going for Day Seven gold is FRITSCH Robert (HUN). He’ll take on reigning European champion Shmagi BOLKVADZE (GEO) for 72kg gold.
At 82kg, Tokyo Olympic bronze medalist and ’21 world champion Rafig HUSEYNOV (AZE) will try to win a second European title in the last three years. He’ll wrestle Georgia’s Gela BOLKVADZE (GEO).
The fifth and final gold-medal bout will be at 97kg, where Finland’s Arvi SAVO-LAI-NEN will compete against Kiril MILOV of Bulgaria.
We’ll start an hour earlier than the previous six days, so we’ll see you back here at 17:00 to close out the European Championships.
