In Greco-Roman wrestling, Slovak athlete István Lévai (aged 24) took third place, in the category up to 66 kilograms of weight. His coach Karol Lengyel praised his performance, adding for the TASR newswire that Lévai really belongs to next year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. (Lévai also won bronze at the previous two European Championships.)
The young Slovak wrestler returns home in a special government plane on June 15, together with karateist Ingrida Suchánková who placed fifth and triathlonist Richard Varga who also was fifth.
The K-2 (kayak double) Slovak team of Erik Vlček and Juraj Tarr ended up fourth in Baku, only three-tenths of a second behind the third place team from Belarus.
Gymnast Slavomír Michňák and some other Slovak athletes will remain in Baku to vie for medals, or good positions, in the upcoming days.
