Background: There were some early shocks in the World Freestyle Wrestling Championships which opened in New Delhi, India, at the weekend, with Bulgaria and the USSR showing some menacing form.
Among the chief surprises was the defeat of Turkey's Mahmut Atalay, the reigning world welterweight champion, by Guliko Sadaradze of the USSR, and then the pinning of another Turkish wrestler, and silver medallist at the last world championships, Hasan Sevino, by Bulgaria's Jancho Patrikor. Another Bulgarian triumph; the defeat of India's previously unbeaten Uday Chand by Enjo Valchev.
Russian wrestlers are to appear in all the eight finals tomorrow night.
