European wrestling silver medallist Aleksei Shemarov has admitted that he wasn't prepared enough to win gold in the men's 125kg freestyle category.
He told reporters: "He beat me because he was better prepared than me. He really wanted to win much more than I, and I could not control the match. Today he is a four-time European champion and top ranked in his category.
"But of course it is possible to overcome him and to do that I should have prepared myself better."
Shemarov scored Belarus's 19th medal of the Games.
