    Yasar was defeated by Russian wrestler Abdulrashid Sadulaev 6-0 in final at the Orleans Arena.

    "I present this medal to families of martyrs. God bless our martyrs. I will work hard and I believe that I will obtain the gold medal, which is my target at the Olympics [in 2016]," Yasar told reporters after the match referring to the soldiers martyred by the PKK terrorist organization in recent clashes.''
