The Baltic Times - - BALTIC NEWS - BNS/TBT Staff

Es­to­nian wrestler Heiki Nabi won the sil­ver medal in men's Greco-ro­man wrestling in the up to 130 kg class at the World Wrestling Cham­pi­onships in Paris. With the vic­tory, Nabi also se­cured his sixth ti­tle com­pe­ti­tion medal. In the fi­nal, Nabi faced Turk Riza Kayaalp, two-time world cham­pion and six-time Euro­pean cham­pion, who also has a bronze medal from the Olympic Games in Lon­don and a sil­ver from the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. As Nabi him­self is cur­rently a two-time world cham­pion, win­ning in 2006 in the up to 96 kg class and in 2013 in the up to 130 kg class, the win­ner of the fi­nal will in any case be­come a three-time world cham­pion. Nabi lost to Kayaalp 1-2.
