In the final contest, Khalmurzayev defeated South Korea’s Wang Kichun. The bronze medal went to Japan’s Keniya Kohara and France’s Jonathan Allardon. This is the 12th medal won by the Russian national team at the 2015 Summer Universiade. Russia has 2 golds, 6 silvers and 4 bronzes.
According to the official website of the International University Sports Federation (FISU), the Summer Universiade is an international sporting and cultural festival which is staged every two years in a different city.
