Dagestani Milana Dadashova places first in youth tournament in Turkey
Antalya, Turkey, May 27, 2015. Dagestani athlete Milana Dadashova has placed first in the youth tournament in Turkey, reports the website of Dagestan Wrestling Federation.
The 18th Memorial to Olympic champions Mitkhat Bairak and Ismet Atly held in Antalya on May 22-24 gathered juniors from nine countries. In the 48 kg weight, Russia was represented by three athletes including Milana Dadashova. Early April, she placed third at the national championships in the 51 kg weigh. Then she decided to get back to her weight that had brought her bronze medals of the world and European championships.
In Antalya, Dadashova showed three early wins, defeating even Russian youth champion Muscovite Anastasia Stepanova. Only in the final did she have to considerably string up to cope with Kazakh Madina Bakdevletova and score 16:14.
In June, Milana is going to Obninsk, Moscow region, for the training camp of the national youth team to get prepared for the European championships. After the success in Antalya, she is a candidate to participate in this competition scheduled to run late June in Istanbul.
