The write-up of Yana’s draw and result is given in the Day 3 news item as above (link). It is repeated here:
There were 32 competitors in GBR’s Yana Rattigan’s 48k weight category but the computer chose to draw her against her sister-in-law, Mariya Stadnyk. From a strong wrestling family, Mariya’s husband and Yana’s brother is Andrey Stadnik, who won an 66k Freestyle Olympic Silver medal at Beijing 2008, coached by their father Vladimir Stadnik, who, so sadly, passed away very recently.
United World Wrestling’s write up about Mariya prior to this event was “London 2012 silver medalist Mariya STADNYK (AZE) is back from maternity leave and has won five events this year, including the European championships and the GGP [Golden Grand Prix] Final, to take the No.1 ranking from Tosaka.” See bottom of this page for full September 2014 UWW Women’s 48k World Rankings.
Yana was beaten 11-0 by Mariya, London 2012 Olympic Silver medalist, European Championship winner (2014, 2011, 2009, 2008) and who this year completed her World Championship podium set of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals (2009, 2011, 2014 respectively).
It should be remembered that earlier this year Yana underwent shoulder surgery and only just made competition fitness in time for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games in late July.
After going on to win against China’s Chun Lei 7-0, and Argentina’s Bermudez 10-0, Mariya lost against the eventual Silver medallist, Poland’s Matkowska (winner of the 2012 European Championships) in the semi-final match by a late penalty point under the new rules. Mariya went on to win Bronze in style against Emilia Vuc of Romania, 11-0 in just 49 seconds. The weight category was won by Eri TOSAKA (JPN) who repeated her 2013 as world champion (and she was runner-up in 2012).
