Russia triumph in +100kg sambo

Artem Osipenko wins another gold medal for Russia at the European Games by triumphing in the men's +100kg sambo in Baku.

Artem Osipenko has continued Russia's success at the European Games by winning gold in the men's +100kg sambo in Baku.

It was the perfect performance from Osipenko as he won all three of his matches 4-0 and completed a successful day by dominating against Azerbaijan's Vasif Safarbayov in the final.

Yury Rybak had been one of the victims of Osipenko's fine form earlier in the event, but the Belarusian finished the day positively to win bronze with a 3-1 win over Radu Malcic of Romania.

Ukraine's Razmik Tonoyan clinched the other bronze medal by dominating his bout with Bajro Mashovikj to beat the Macedonian 4-0 after losing to Safarbayov in the semi-finals.
