Ukrainian wrestler Yuliia Tkach has labelled herself as a "beautiful girl" who is "afraid of nothing" ahead of her freestyle 63kg final at the European Games tonight.
"You see what a beautiful girl I am, fighting for medal and afraid of nothing," Tkach told reporters. "And Azerbaijan's Mariya Stadnyk is so small, but so strong and beats everyone.
"It makes the women more controlled, helps to control the feelings and herself. And the body is also more beautiful and muscular when you do sport, the same is true for wrestling."
Stadnyk won gold in yesterday's 48kg freestyle wrestling event.
