  • Description

    Haelsingberg--The second day here on July 2nd of the Greco-Roman wrestling world championships offered much better wrestling than the first day. There were many excellent matches and the wrestlers gave their best in order to qualify for the final rounds.

    The Soviet and East European wrestlers continued to dominate the championships, and so far no Russian wrestler has lost one single match. Hungarians, Bulgarians and Yugoslavs also impressed the audience.

    Sweden was once one of the great Greco-Roman wrestling countries, but the Swedish fans today (July 2nd) did not show any great interest in the world meet, with only two-thousand persons turning up for the night matches. The stadium here can hold ten-thousand people.
