By M.ZOLJARGAL

The Mongolian national team of female freestyle wrestlers arrived at Chinggis Khaan International Airport on Saturday night after competing at the World Wrestling Championships in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
O.Amartuvshin, vice president of the Mongolian Wrestling Federation (MWF), G.Usukhbayar, vice president of Aldar Sports Committee and Ts.Khosbayar, State Honored Athlete, as well as families and friends of the team welcomed the athletes.
Upon arrival, the newly crowned world champion, S.Tserenchimed, said, “I’m happy that I won the world championship title with four victories, but at the same time, I feel like I have a lot more responsibilities now. My intensive training in Japan prior to the World Championships helped me adapt to managing overloads and trained me for showing everything I have. I will keep trying my best in the future.”
Both women’s and men’s national teams of Mongolia ranked sixth in the championships. It was the men’s team’s first time making the top six out of 60 countries in the past 27 years, while the women’s team ranked sixth out of 46 countries.
“Our team of female wrestlers showed promising achievements in the World Championships this year. A Mongolian wrestler was crowned champion for the first time in four years and State Honored Athlete O.Burmaa won her third World Championships medal,” said a MWF spokesperson.
The athletes brought two medals from the championships for the first time since 1985.
The Japanese women’s team topped the rank with 55 points, while the Russian team ranked second with 48 points, followed by the United States team with 41 points.
Both teams of Mongolia qualified to the 2015 World Wrestling Championships.
