World champion Aisuluu Tynybekova underlined her credentials by winning the 62-kilogram title in dominant fashion at the United World Wrestling (UWW) Individual World Cup in Belgrade.

Tynybekova, Kyrgyzstan's first wrestler to win a senior world title, dominated Latvia's Anastasija Grigorjeva in a 14-0 victory in the final.

Gold medals were won in five women's freestyle weight categories in the Serbian capital today, while final line-ups in five more were also decided.

Russian Ekaterina Poleshchuk, a reigning world bronze medallist, won the 50kg title, beating Liliia Malanchuk of Ukraine 10-0.

Greek Maria Prevolaraki - twice a World Championship bronze medalist - earned the 53kg gold by defeating Poland's Roksana Marta Zasina.

Belarus' Iryna Kurachkina, another two-time world bronze medallist and a former European champion, beat German Annika Wendle 9-0 for the 55kg title.

The day's final gold medal was won by Yuliana Vasileva Yaneva of Bulgaria.

Turkey's Buse Tosun, twice a European medallist at 68kg, fell to Yaneva in the 72kg final.

The UWW Individual World Cup is taking place in lieu of the World Championships, which Belgrade was due to host before they were called off because of the coronavirus pandemic reducing the number of leading nations prepared to send a team.

Canada's Olympic champion Erica Wiebe is among the high-profile athletes competing, but she lost in the 76kg semi-finals to Yasemin Adar of Turkey.

Adar, a former world champion, won via a fall and will face Germany's Aline Rotter-Focken - herself an ex-world champion - in the final.

Three Moldovans - Anastasia Nichita at 57kg, Mariana Cherdivara Esanu at 59kg and Irina Ringaci at 65kg - were among the other wrestlers to qualify for finals today.

Nichita is the reigning 59kg European champion.

The tournament continues in Belgrade tomorrow.
