What a great result for Georgina Nelthorpe and British Wrestling. Georgina has added a European under 23’s Bronze to the Commonwealth Bronze she won in the Gold Coast last Year, beating Enrica Rinaldi of Italy 3-1 in the 76kg Bronze medal match
Rinaldi was Silver Medalist in the Junior World Championships 2018.
Georgina is a very dedicated and committed to the sport and works extremely hard. This result is testament to that.Georgina has just turned 22 years old and has her best years on the mat are still to come.
A big thank you to the whole of the GBR/Build for Birmingham Squad and staff set up, Oleg Druzhynets who cornered on the day in Novi Sad, as well as the Bolton Universities’ sports science team for their efforts and commitment, all of which has contributed to this result. Also a big well done to Georgina’s home club, Sharples Wrestling Club.
The junior class from the City of Manchester Wrestling Club were watching live as the match was streamed into the British Wrestling Academy Board room and they were able to share in Georgina’s success.
Good luck to George Ramm (65kg) and Syerus Eslami (86kg) who compete on Friday and Sunday respectively.
