Medalists in two weight categories have changed at the World Beach Games wrestling competitions.

Iranian Puya Rahmani, who was found to be using a banned drug, was deprived of her gold medal. As a result, those who took the next places in the heaviest weight rose one step, respectively. Thus, Ufuk Yilmaz (Turkey) was declared the gold medalist, Mamuka Kordza (Georgia) the silver medalist and Oyan Nazariani the bronze medalist. It should be noted that Oyan lost to Rahmani, who used doping, in the semifinal.

Thus, the number of medals won by our wrestlers at the first World Beach Games has reached three. Panah Ilyasli (70 kg) and Ibrahim Yusubov (80 kg) won silver medals in Doha.
