HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 2 (ACN) With pure thrust and a lethal off-balance, Greco-Roman wrestler Mijaín López (130 kgs) defeated Georgian Iakobi Kajaia 5-0 today and won the gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
In the first period, Lopez put the European passive, and then took advantage of his good grip in the four-point position to project him an off-balance and close with three points.
And in the second period, there was no change of script. Mijaín scored the fourth point due to the continued passivity of Kakaia, whom he later took out of the cushion to score the fifth and last scratch.
Thus, the native of Pinar del Río won his fourth consecutive Olympic title, and in these events he has only received one point against, received from the Russian Khasan Baroev in Beijing 2008.
This gold medal won by Mijaín is added to the one obtained today by another Greco-Roman gladiator Luis Orta (60 kgs).
