Karen Aslanyan claims Greco-Roman Junior wrestling world title –
SOFIA (August 13) – A pair of European champions from Armenia claimed world titles and Musa EVLOEV (RUS), with a pair of continental crowns himself, dominated in Greco-Roman on the opening day of the junior world wrestling championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Karen ASLANYAN (ARM), a European cadet champion a year ago, stunned from one of the favorites on his way to the 60kg title, while European junior champion Karapet CHALYAN (ARM) improved on his bronze medal last year in Thailand with a triumph at 74kg.
EVLOEV, meanwhile, racked up three technical on his way to the 96kg crown to add a world championship triumph to his two European junior crowns.
