A friend from Georgia (the sate in Caucasus) told me about an interesting fact he stumbled across when reading a book about sport in Georgia written by a Georgian sport journalist some 20 years ago. In the chapter dedicated to the 2x Olympic champ & 4x world champ Levan Tedishvili, Tediashvili is said to hold the world record for the fastest pin time of 7 or even 4 seconds. The author quotes Tediashvili saying that he actually had pinned his opponent within only 4 seconds but the referees had recorded 7 seconds on the sheet.
The guy pinned came from Switzerland and his family name was Martinetti. Unfortunately, his first name isn't mentioned in the book. Who of the 3 Martinetti brothers?
Was it Jimmy Martinetti? In the late 1960s – early 80s, he wrestled at 82 kg. In the same weight division, Tediashvili wrestled in the late 60s – early 70s.
In 1973 Tediashvili went up to 90 kg. In that time, also Etienne Martinetti wrestled at 90 kg. Was it him?
Or was it future FILA president Rafael Martinetti about whose wrestling career almost nothing is known?
