VSU international student won “silver” in the wrestling championship

The competition was held at the Cherepovets martial arts center. Sharifkhoja Mammadov, a student at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Energy and Transport, was the 2nd among juniors in the weight category up to 85 kg.

Sharifkhoja will represent the Vologda Oblast at the competitions of the North-West Russia league.

“It was my first freestyle wrestling competition. It was a pretty tough bout for me as the style of wrestling is different from Sambo and Judo, but I’ve been training hard, and it helped achieve this result”, said the athlete.

Congratulations Sharifkhoja on your achievement and we wish you all the success in sports!
