Zhan BELENIUK (UKR) is one of the world's most decorated Greco-Roman wrestlers. 

In 2019, Beleniuk captured his second world title with a victory over Viktor LORINCZ (HUN) in the gold-medal match at 87kg. It was his fourth world medal to go along with an Olympic silver medal he claimed at the 2016 Rio Games. 

Beleniuk joined Eric Olanowski to talk about his road to a winning pair of world titles, his aspirations of improving his Rio Olympic silver medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games and his role over the last year as a member of the Ukrainian Parliament.
