The host nation dominated at an international freestyle wrestling meet this weekend in Ashdod, winning four of the weight classes. Some 140 wrestlers from seven countries competed at the event. For Israel, gold medals went to Pavel Sinbeski (under-55 kilograms), Sivan Sedikov (-74kg), Vasili Kalashnikov (-96kg) and Michele Reizman (-120kg). Aleksander Krinski of Belarus (-60kg), Vitaly Kozlov of Ukraine (-66kg) and Valery Andrichov of Ukraine (-84kg) took gold in the other weight classes.
