In the World Wrestling Cham­pi­onships (WWC) O.Nasan­bur­maa won a sil­ver medal in the 72 kg cat­e­gory on Oc­to­ber 24. In do­ing so, she has be­come the first Mon­go­lian to have won four medals from the WWC. The Mon­go­lian wrestler won against wrestlers from Hun­gary, Turkey and China and in the fi­nale, she was de­feated by Cana­dian wrestler Justina Di Sta­sio, who won bronze medal in last year’s cham­pi­onships.

Ten years ago, O.Nasan­bur­maa won a bronze medal in the World Wrestling Cham­pi­onships, which took place in Tokyo, Ja­pan. Since then, she won bronze medals in 2011 and 2013. Around the time of her third bronze medal, the pub­lic was crit­i­cal of her for only win­ning bronze medals. On her 10th year an­niver­sary of her first bronze medal from the WWC, she has made a come­back and in­creased her rank sig­nif­i­cantly.

Ad­di­tion­ally, B.Shoovor of Mon­go­lia won a bronze medal in the women’s 59 kg at the cham­pi­onships. She be­came a medal­ist of the World Cham­pi­onships by de­feat­ing Romero Bonilla, a wrestler from Mex­ico 4-2. B.Shoovor then went on to de­feat wrestlers from the USA and In­dia, but she lost to Turk­ish wrestler Elif Ye­silir­mak and set­tled for a bronze medal.

In the past, she took part in the 2015 World Wrestling Cham­pi­onships in Las Ve­gas and has been wrestling on the in­ter­na­tional arena and win­ning medals.

The Mon­go­lian team has claimed one sil­ver and two bronze medals at the WWC 2018. T.Tu­vish­in­tulga won Mon­go­lia’s first medal from this year’s WWC, a bronze in the men’s 61kg.
