Iran and Russia: the first winners

In the huge 77kg category (29 athletes at the startline) in a very exciting and keen battle, Iran’s TAGHIAN Chadegani Rasoul finally became the 2013 Universiade Champion, ahead of Uzbekistan’s ALIMOV Ulugbek and the local favourite KHOMYAKOV Dmitry. The Russian Federation’s Minister of Sport Mr. MUTKO Vitaly, accompanied by Mr. BURGANOV Rafis, Tatarstan’s Minister of Youth, Sports and Tourism was in attendance and the guests were deeply impressed by the quality of the competitions and the venue.

More success for the host country came in the Women’s 69kg where multiple world champion SLIVENKO Oxana just swept the field with an overwhelming performance of 242kg and took the gold medal.

In both categories, the Universiade “practice” continued and records abounded.
