Georgian wrestler Zura Datunashvili (87 kg) who competed on behalf of Serbia won the gold medal at the 2022 World Championship in Greco-Roman style wrestling in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.
In the final, the Georgian defeated Bisultanov, representing Denmark, with a clear advantage.
Datunashvili won the title of the strongest wrestler of the planet for the second time in a row.
In 2018, Datunashvili accused the Georgian Wrestling Federation of favoritism and corruption. On 11 January 2019, he was assaulted by Gega Gegeshidze, the president of the Georgian Wrestling Federation, following a match with Robert Kobliashvili which Datunashvili lost by the referee’s decision. The incident was captured on video. “I don’t want him [Gegeshidze] to be arrested, I want him to resign,” Datunashvili later told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. “He’s not man enough to speak the truth, but I feel that truth will prevail. Everyone saw that he hit me with a blunt metal object of some kind.”
On 20 January that year, the Georgian Police announced they were opening an investigation into the incident, after which Datunashvili moved to Serbia and started competing on behalf of the country.
In 2020, he won one of the bronze medals in the 87 kg event at the 2020 Individual Wrestling World Cup held in Belgrade, Serbia.
In 2021, he won a bronze medal in Tokyo, at the Olympic games for the Serbian national team.
In 2022, he won the silver medal in his event at the Vehbi Emre & Hamit Kaplan Tournament held in Istanbul, Turkey.
