Frank Chamizo has won bronze in Rio 2016 in wrestling, in the 65 kg category beating the American, Molinaro (3-1) for a place on the podium. The World and European champion's dreams of gold (photo Mezzelani/GMT) were shattered in the semi-finals (1-3) against the Azerbaijani Asgarov, after winning his first fight (3-1) against the Armenian Safaryan and success in the quarter finals against the Georgian Lakobishvili (3-1). This is Italy's second Olympic wrestling medal, after gold won by Claudio Pollio in Moscow in 1980 in the 48 kg category. Italy reaches 28 medals in the 31st edition of the Summer Olympics (waiting to find out the colour of the medal for the Italian volleyball team, involved in the fight for gold against Brazil).
