Isa Karasanov, the champion's coach, called the result deserved: "We prepared hard for this start. We understood what kind of opponents we would face. Magomedsultan lived up to my expectations. He is a disciplined and hard-working athlete. People like him are called "plowmen". That's why his results are so good.
