DEFINITION OF THE WINNER IN THE FIGHT

Victory in both types of wrestling is counted in the following cases: a clear victory – awarded ahead of schedule when fixing the opponent’s shoulder blades on the carpet (carcass from French toucher), disqualification of an opponent or the advantage of one of the fighters in 10 or more points; victory by points – awarded after the end of the match when the difference in the score is less than 10 points.

The fight of wrestlers consists of two three-minute rounds with a break of 30 seconds. If the points are equal after the end of the main time, the fight is extended for another three minutes.

There can be no one in a duel, but to win, the difference in the score should be more than three points. If none of the wrestlers can score points or the difference in the score is less than three points, the opponents are placed in a cross grip, determining the advantage in the draw by draw (the referee throws a coin). In this case, the point is awarded to the one who manages to conduct the attacking action first. (The price of a single mistake is so great in modern wrestling, the Olympic tournament in Sydney 2000 clearly demonstrated: the warning received by the Russian Alexander Karelin for breaking the seizure in the final match was fatal for him: he lost to the American Rollon Gardner with a score of 0: 1) .
