BUDAPEST, Hungary (March 20) --- The fourth and final day of wrestling at the #WrestleBudapest European Olympic Qualifier gets underway at 18:00 (local time).
19:10: That'll do it for our coverage of the European Olympic Qualifier. Congratulations to everyone who helped their nation reach the Olympic Games. Until next time, so long, wrestling fans.
19:03: Sergey SEMENOV (RUS) rolled up Mantas KNYSTAUTAS (LTU) with a pair of second-period side headlocks and claimed Russia's second gold of the night.
18:47: Islam ABBASOV (AZE) and Arvi Martin SAVOLAINEN (FIN) finals opponents forfeited so they were awarded the gold medals at 87kg and 97kg, respectively.
18:23: The next finals match will be the 87kg finals between '19 world champion Lasha GOBADZE (GEO) and Islam ABBASOV (AZE).
18:22: From the looks of things, Bozo STARCEVIC (CRO) is sitting out of the finals, too. That'll give Aleksandr CHEKHIRKIN (RUS) the 77kg gold.
18:16: It looks like Balint KORPASI (HUN) has elected to sit out of the finals, which means the 68kg gold goes to Georgia's Ramaz ZOIDZE.
18:11: The 60kg title goes to the 21-year-old Turk, Kamal. He scored a four-point throw in the first and an inactivity in the second to defeat Kinsinger, 5-1. It's his second gold of the year. Kamal also won gold at the Heni Deglane in January.
