Serbian wrestler Mate Nemeš secured a Paris 2024 quota place for his country after securing a bronze medal at a home World Wrestling Championships in Belgrade.

Nemeš, the champion in the Greco Roman under-67 men's kilograms category at last year's World Championships, could not make the final this year, but had an opportunity for a bronze medal, along with securing Serbia a quota place at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Nemeš won on points after his fight with Amantur Ismailov of Kyrgyzstan ended 3-3.

The second bronze-medal contest was a one-sided affair as fellow Tokyo 2020 champion Iranian Mohammadreza Abdolhamid Geraei overcame Armenian Slavik Galstyan 8-0, after a bout in which Galstyan received three cautions.

Reigning Olympic champion Luis Alberto Orta Sanchez of Cuba claimed gold with a 4-3 win on points against Azerbaijan’s Hasrat Jafranov.

In the men’s 87kg category gold went to Turkey’s Ali Cengiz, a narrow 8-7 winner on points over David Losonczi of Hungary.

In the battles for bronze, and Paris 2024 quota places, Olympic champion Zhan Beleniuk of Ukraine claimed a 7-2 points victory against Nursultan Tursynov of Kazakhstan.

The second bronze-medal bout saw Bulgarian Semen Sergeevich Novikov run out a 6-3 points winner over Islam Abbasov of Azerbaijan.

Finally, in the non-Olympic 63kg category, the gold medal went to Georgia’s Leri Abuladze who won on points after his contest with Murad Mammadov of Azerbaijan finished 2-2.

In the bronze-medal bouts, victories went to Turkey’s Enes Basar and home fighter Georgij Tibilov, who won on points against France’s Stefan Roger Clement and Hrachya Poghosyan of Armenia respectively.
