The head of the United World of Wrestling (UWW), Nenad Lalovic, believes that Russia has a good chance of hosting the European Wrestling Championships in 2018.

– “Russia is applying for the European Championship 2018, and according to the procedure, the Executive Committee will consider this issue at its next meeting. I think Russia has good chances,” Lalovic said.

– As for the security problems, we have never had them. We know that if Makhachkala (Dagestan) accepts this tournament, then the whole city will be living (breathing) with this tournament. At the same time, of course, we will conduct all necessary checks, but there should be no fear. Football players there do not conduct international matches? But we are wrestlers, we are not soccer players.

In 2017, the European Championships will be held in Serbia.
