Turkish wrestler Rıza Kayaalp won a gold medal-the seventh in his career – at the 2017 European Wrestling Championships in Serbia on Saturday.

Kayaalp, a 27-year-old athlete from central Turkey’s Yozgat province, came first in the men’s 130-kilogram (286 pounds) Greco-Roman category by beating Hungary’s Balint Lam.

The national athlete had received a silver medal at the Rio Games in 2016.

On Friday, another Turkish wrestler Taha Akgül had won a gold medal in the men’s 125-kilogram (276 pounds) freestyle category by beating Azerbaijan’s Jamaladdin Magomedov at the tournament.

Turkish athlete Yasemin Adar had also won a gold medal in the women’s 75-kilogram freestyle category in the same tournament on Thursday.
