    Not many of us can read Russian, Big. Maybe you could elaborate a little bit.

    So what's your point?

    She's from Khandagayty in the Russian Republic of Tyva (Tuva), literally on the border of Northern Mongolia. So yeah she looks Mongolian. She is of the Oorzhak clan, so when the Russians took over this Republic most people probably didn't have last names so they gave her family the last name "Oorzhak."

    She was the one in car accident after the Euros last month. Article says she'll be able to wrestle with one kidney.

    No major point. Just thought it would be interesting for people to see an Asian Russian. Yeah, she won Europeans and then got into a major car accident where her stomach got ripped open. One of her kidneys was damaged and taken out but supposedly she has a chance to keep wrestling.

    Big - every ranked female at 48 kg is an Asian Russian.

    Russian takeover happened a long time ago though. She is no less Russian than Gatsalov.

    Did you mean no more Russian than Gatsalov? Neither one is a ethnic Russian (i.e Slavic). She is of one the "Turkic" peoples.
