The best greco-roman wrestling fights
Greco-Roman wrestling is a European type of wrestling in which an athlete, through a certain arsenal of technical actions, tries to unbalance the opponent and press him with his shoulder blades to the carpet. In Greco-Roman wrestling, in contrast to freestyle wrestling, technical actions with legs (holds, steps, sweeps) and grabbing of the legs with hands are prohibited. Classical wrestling was born in Ancient Greece and developed in the Roman Empire, and a modern, revived form of Greco-Roman wrestling was formed in France in the first half of the 19th century, hence its name until the middle of the 20th century.
Alexander Chekhirkin is a Russian Greco-Roman wrestler, 2018 world champion, 2019 European Games champion and 2014 European champion. Honored Master of Sports of Russia.
