We remind you that at the beginning of last year, Anastasija Grigorjeva, the fifth place winner of the Tokyo Olympics, won the title of the best sportswoman of Daugavpils for the ninth time, beating the beach volleyball player Anastasija Samoilova.
Grigorieva is now back after her maternity break. In the final of the 62 kilogram category of the Latvian Championship, she quickly dealt with Katrīna Barča and won the gold. “Currently, I am more of a mother than a professional athlete. I would pay more attention to my health, because the recovery process is a little longer this time,” Anastasija Grigorieva revealed to LTV1.
Our best female wrestler has not competed in international competitions for more than two years – since the Olympic Games. Grigorieva is a four-time European champion (2009, 2013, 2014, 2016) and a two-time world bronze medalist (2014, 2017).
Ramina Mamedova, Elma Zeidler, Alīna Antipova, Ivars Samušonoks and others also won the national championship gold in freestyle wrestling, and the President of Latvian Sport wrestling, Armands Zvirbulis, became the national champion for the tenth time.
