Russia clinched two gold medals to round off the women's freestyle events in commanding fashion at the United World Wrestling (UWW) Under-23 European Championships at the Bulstrad Arena in Ruse today.

Natalia Malshyeva was in supreme form in the 53 kilogram weight division as she enjoyed a comfortable path to the final before comfortably overcoming Ukraine's Lilya Horishna 11-0 to clinch the gold medal.

The two bronze medal contests also proved to be one-sided affairs as Mercedesz Denes of Hungary and Azerbaijan's Leyla Gurbanova comfortably fended off the challenges of Moldova's Iulia Leorda and Sweden's Sandra Sofia Sarkkinen respectively.

Following on from Malshyeva's success, Anzhela Fomenko added a second title for the Russian team, topping the podium in the 63kg competition.

Fomenko dominated the gold medal bout against Adela Hanzlickova of the Czech Republic, winning with an 11-0 technical fall.

Asli Tugcu of Turkey, winner of two gold medals yesterday, sealed the first available bronze as she overcame Alexandra Nicoleta Anghel of Romania, before Ukraine's Solomiya Volska beat Madzina Sidakova of Belarus to claim the other.

Volska's compatriot Tetyana Kit won the 58kg category, securing the gold medal with a closely-fought 3-0 victory in the final against Azerbaijan's Alyona Kolesnik.

Kit had earlier halted Russian hopes of a third gold medal on day four of the event in the Bulgarian city, edging Veronika Chumikova in the semi-final.

Chumikova ended on a positive note, though, earning the bronze medal with victory over Italy's Carola Rainero.

Derya Bayhan added to the Turkish haul as she claimed the other spot on the podium as she beat Ecaterina Rusu of Moldova.

The gold medal in the last women's freestyle category of the competition went the way of Hungary, thanks to Zsanett Nemeth's 8-3 triumph in her final clash with Germany's Anna Carmen Schell.

Gabriela Georgieva Peycvheva gave the home crowd something to cheer, clinching one of the two bronze medals on offer, edging a tight encounter with Spain's Estefania del Jesus Ramirez Perdomo.

Natallia Lanko of Belarus also took home a medal as she accounted for Anastasiia Shustova of the Ukraine.

The event is due to continue tomorrow.
