Sengoku Fighter Ramaz Nozadze's Olympic Dream Over

Thursday, 14 August 2008

Sengoku fighter Ramaz Nozadze's attempt at Olympic glory failed in the quarter-final today. He won his first fight against Greek Theodoros Tounousidis, but in the quarter final Czech Marek Svec was too strong. Ramaz had one final hope for a medal and that was if Svec reached the final, however he lost in the semi-final, so Ramaz Nozadze leaves Beijing without a medal.

The greco-roman wrestling is a lottery. The one who gets the ball first has a big advantage over his opponent. They also seem to change the rules between every Olympic. Hopefully the freestyle wrestling is better.
