On a full day of finals, Turkey claimed the most gold medals in muaythai at the International University Sports Federation (FISU) World Cup Combat Sports.

The hosts took the gold and silver medals in the opening two bouts of the day, which saw Tugbanur Kivrak defeat Nadiye Özdemir in the women's under-51 kilogram final, followed up by a victory for Ezgi Keles in the women's under-54kg match against Ezgi Yilmaz.

In fact, Turkey won gold in all four women's finals they competed in, with the third going the way of Nefise Atalay in the women's under-57kg against Lenka Škundová from Slovakia.

The last of these went the way of Devrim Aydin in the women's under-63.5kg final, having unanimously defeated Miryam Chalghomi of the United Arab Emirates.

The only women's gold not to go Turkey's way today was in the over-67kg, when Tetiana Hamarko of Ukraine defeated Dana Akef Batanji of Palestine.

Other Turkish wins came in men's categories, including in the under-63.5kg final which saw Tunahan Atar have his arm raised at the expense of Ameer Amle from Palestine, while Kubilay Tarhan won an all-Turkish men's under-67kg final against Ismail Baran Özdemir.

An all-Turkish final concluded the action here, with Umut Eryimaz beating Muammer Can Sahin in the men's over-91kg by an early referee's stoppage.

It could have been an eighth gold, however, Palestine's Ahmad Helal came from behind to defeat Hasan Cetin in the men's under-86kg final.

Aside from Turkey, Thailand picked up wins at men's under-57kg and under-60kg weights thanks to Jeerapong Paejumpu and Phakphum Kaithin over home favourites Samet Kartal and Bekir Karaomerlioglu.

Ukraine also took other victories in the later part of the day - with Vladyslav Yeremenko beating Italian Alein Iannone in the men's under-71kg final, before Oleksandr Yefimenko won the under-75kg title against compatriot Vladyslav Hryhoriev.
