    I've not heard of Bularia before. Are they a sister state to Bulimia?

    Anyway, just an interesting bit of information: All medalists at 96kg freestyle wrestled for Russia at some point of their careers.

    Another statistics I made:

    16 (incl. 6 gold) out of 28 medals have been won by wrestlers from Caucasus.
    8 (3) - by Daghestanis
    4 (3) - by Ossetians
    4 (-) - by Georgians

    All medalists at 74 and 96 were from Caucasus.

    55 kg ? 1. RUS-Ossetia, 2. GER, 3. BUL, TUR.
    60 kg ? 1. UKR, 2. BUL, 3. HUN, MKD (imported from RUS-Daghestan).
    66 kg ? 1. BLR (imported from RUS-Ossetia), 2. RUS-Ossetia, 3. BUL, TUR (imported from RUS-Daghestan).
    74 kg ? 1. RUS-Daghestan, 2. GEO, 3. AZE (imported from RUS-Daghestan), GRE (imported from GEO).
    84 kg ? 1. RUS-Ossetia, 2. UKR, 3. HUN, TUR.
    96 kg ? 1. RUS-Daghestan, 2. BLR (imported from RUS-Daghestan), 3. ARM (imported from RUS-Daghestan), GEO.

    Was Bulgaria a Soviet Republic? I know the Soviet Union had serious influence to the point of control but wasn't Bulgaria technically independant?

    Bulgaria was not a part of Soviet Union.
