Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr Z. Safarov / The secret of our success is the strong school established in the USSR, the chief coach of the Russian national free-style wrestling team, Dzambolat Tedeev, said to Trend while commenting on the victory of the team in the total number in Baku World Championship.
Even in the USSR period the best members of the team were mostly natives of North Caucasus and the situation has not changed, he said. "If we have small number of medals, the Greco-Roman national team helps us, and vice versa. We are maximalists and everybody knows out team is the strongest in the world. We do our best to keep the team high - a matter of principle for us," the chief coach said.
As a result of the championship, Russian free-style wrestlers won 6 golden medals of 7 available.
