. . . Gadzhimurad Rashidov . . .

Rashidov was born and raised in the Gubden village, Dagestan. He started wrestling at the age of six on his home, under his father Gazigand Rashidov and training with his brother Shamil. That same year, he won his first medal, in a local tournament that took place in memory of the victims from the Gurbuki village during World War II.

After finishing high school in 2011, he moved to Kaspiysk, and started training at Gamidov’s Wrestling Academy, in Makhachkala. As the trips from his house to the school were too long, he switched to Kuramagomedov’s wrestling academy, which is located in Kaspiysk, under Said Gireyev and his father.[4]

Rashidov was a two-time Cadet World Champion in 2011 and 2012, and a two-time Junior World Championship silver medalist, in 2014 and 2015.[5]

Rashidov made his senior freestyle debut in 2012, when he placed third at the Ali Aliev Memorial International.[6] In 2015, after placing fifth at the Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix,[7] Rashidov claimed a bronze medal at the Russian Nationals,[8] and then went on to help the Russian Team win gold at the European Nations Cup.

To start off the year, Rashidov dropped down from 61 to 57 kilograms, and claimed a bronze medal from the Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix in January.[9] He then became the ’16 European Champion, racking up notable wins over Asadulla Lachinau and two-time Cadet World ChampionAndriy Yatsenko.[10] On May, he competed at the Russian Nationals, where after remarkably defeating ’14 Junior World ChampionAzamat Tuskaev, the Dagestan National Team decided to withdraw all the Dagestani wrestlers from the championship, after frustration due to the final decision regarding the conflict between Viktor Lebedev and Ismail Musukaev, which led to a forfeit from Rashidov.[11][12]
