Team GB’s two wrestling athletes are:-
|Women’s Freestyle||48kg||Yana Rattigan||@yana2012|
Said Yana, “It’s a huge honour to be selected to represent Team GB at the Baku 2015 European Games. Getting another chance to compete in a multi-sport event is a great opportunity and valuable experience. I have good memories of competing in Baku after winning silver at the 2010 European Championships so I’m looking forward to returning.”
Congratulations to Chinu and Yana on their selection for Team GB. They will be accompanied by coach Anatolii Kharytoniuk.
