Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The first day of the Asia-Oceania Championship has ended in Bishkek. It is noteworthy that during this day, five of our representatives won medals.
Sardor Nurillaev (-66 kg) managed to overcome all his rivals and win the title of the champion of Asia. It should be noted that in the final he went to the tatami against the 2015 world champion, the finalist of the Rio 2016 Olympics An Baul.
