October 29, 2018

Vladimir Putin congratulated the Russian freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling teams on their top medal standing at the 2018 World Wrestling Championships in Budapest.

The message reads, in part:

“Each of you has made a great personal contribution to this remarkable victory, has performed excellently, sparing no effort, pushing to the limit, as they say. And of course, your coaches, mentors, and specialists deserve special words of gratitude – those who have helped you succeed, have sincerely supported you and have stood by you at important competitions.”

Russian athletes won 13 medals in Hungary – ten gold, one silver and two bronze.
