    I'm not sure what the scoring 5:0 means; who won?

    Does Toguzov still wrestle in the Russian nationals?

    No 1996 was the last time he competed on the Senior level and he repped UKR. Pretty sure he has German citizenship now.

    He has German citizenship but he lives mostly in Russia - in Ossetia. His son, 13, practices there and is said to be a future wrestling star

    Matsunaga won 1-0, 3-0 (3x1), 1-0. Notice that a match in the German league has 3, 4 or 5 periods. To win a match one has to win 3 of 5 periods.
