    Default More Russian festivities in Gatsalov's semifinal

    Russian site says Gatsalov lost the first period due to clinch and won the 2nd period. In the 3rd period with 30 seconds left his opponent took him down and the score was 2:2. Gatsalov then contra-attacked and the ref gave him a point which the fans thought was undeserving. After his opponent's coaches tried to run to the table, they were stopped by police.

    At this time the Russian site says the fans started throwing dozens of plastic bottles on the mat. The point was upheld though and then Gatsalov won another point and won the final period 4:2 and the match.

    Gatsalov in an interview about the final match vs. Shirvani Muradov




    ?The atmosphere during the match wasn't pleasant. I felt pressure from the spectators. Several times, [plastic] bottles landed on the mat. [...] The victory of Shirvani Muradov at the European championships gave him added self-confidence and made him believe he would beat me. After the match, he even didn't want to acknowledge my victory for some time.?
