   This summer Hasan Boroev, my uncles disciple, became the  best  wrestler
in the Greek-Roman class, in the world. And I decided to write a  report  on
this theme. Because I was proud of my uncle and I decided to tell you  about
this unfamous kind of sport in our republic. While finding  the  information
I decided to make my theme wider. And began finding  information  about  all
old sports we had  in  our  small  republic.  Ive  found  such  sports  as:
wrestling, horse riding, bicycle sport and so on. Today I want to  tell  you
about them. Im sure youll become interested.



                             The first wrestler

   At the beginning of our sencury in Russia he name of  the  great  osetian
wrestler Temirbolat Dudarovich Kanukov was famous. This bogatyr  developed
unusually. Before he  was  1  year  old,  he  was  very  small,  feeble  and
delicate. Then he began to grow quickly.   When  he  was  10  years  old  he
worked with his father cutting trees in the forest. And when he was 5  years
old he worked with logs himself. When Bola was 15, he was 2m 24sm  long  and
weighed 200 kg.
   Temirbolat (Bola) Dudarovich Kanukov was  called  Kazbek-  a  mountain.
Bola was very kind and uncunning. His neighbors often made  him  take  exams
in his strength. And Bola easily managed to pass them.
   His family wasnt big - a wife, a daughter and an  adopted  son  Vasiliy.
Bola adapted him when Vasiliy was 2,5 years old. He loved him not less  than
a daughter.
   It was hard to hide such big  man  in  a  small  village  of  Koban,  and
Temirbolat didnt like to sit in his mountain nest. Bola  asked  his  father
and went to Vladicavcas, where the Turkish circus was  showing  its  tricks,
and asked the bast wrestler to have a match, with Bola. He  easily  won  the
butcher. Thus Temirbolat became a circus wrestler. He liked to wrestle  in
parterre. Facing Bola his rival couldnt stand on his legs.
   In 1904 Bola Kanukov became a professional wrestler  and  played  on  the
circus arena more than 10 years. He didnt have any technique,  but  he  won
his rivals with the help  of  strength  and  courage.  He  won  many  famous
wrestlers.
   Last time Bola wrestled in 1917 in Baku. It was parting  and  thats  why
the hardest  match.  It  is  enough  to  say  that  his  rivals  were  world
champions. When he won last match he bowed standing on the  saint  point  of
arena, which was small for him. He stayed in  the  wrestling  history  as  a
very strong man.
   Temirbolat died with unusual death. He lay on the dry ground.  After  the
storm he couldnt stand, he was brought to the house ill. He lay in bed  for
3weeks and died. Bola was bored in Mayskoe village.
   In 1934 his daughter died. During the Great Patriotic  War  Vasiliy,  his
adopted son, fought and died as a hero.



                                   History
    There is no doubt that the victories of wrestlers in  free  style  were
caused mainly by the fact that the most part of future champions  came  from
classical wrestling the great  "freers"  coach  Aslanbek  Zaharovich  Dzgoev
used to repeat: "Classic is always classic".
    As a Peculiar example of osetian wrestlers, of classical style, we  may
call Temirbolat Kanukov. The glory of  his  strength  was  rumbling  in  all
country.
    Before the Great Patriotic War Kermen and Peter Tukkaevs, Peter Andiev,
Mustafa Nakov and others glittered on  the  arena.  Nakov  became  a  bronze
champion of USSR in 1939. At that time it was very perfect.
    Viktor Pavlov won not less. Since 1924 to 1941 nobody could win him  in
the republic and in the whole Caucasus. Later Victor Radionovich started  to
coach and prepared a great number of good wrestlers between them  there  are
A. Tukkaev, A. Makoev, V. Gacolaev and others.
    Great was a share to the development of classical wrestling of  Michael
Ogladze. His wrestlers Peter Andiev, Boris  Burnacev  became  the  Caucasian
champions not once.
    But the special prosperity of classical wrestling came at  the  end  of
50th  at  the  beginning  of  60th,  many  wonderful  sportsmen   won   many
international and USSR  competitions  between  them  are  Kermen  Samenov's,
Michael  Ogladze's  and  Aslan  Dzgoev's  wrestlers    winners   of   RSFSR
competitions of many years. And Anatoly Kirov, which came to Vladicavkas  to
study, while he was here he won a world championship.
    Tauzbek Dzahsorov, Boris Abaev,  Tamir  Marzaganov,  Boris  Basiev  and
Shaukuz Dzarasov had both good methods in free and in  classical  style.  We
can name many good wrestlers in later  time,  between  them  there  are  the
Sumenov brothers, and Sidakov brothers.
    There were different moments in the history of classical wrestling.  It
was famous and not. But in all times there were men,  who  didnt  let  this
kind of sport disappear between them Aslanbek Hamurov, Emzar  Karalidze  and
Vladimir Uruimagov are mainly due to  his  efforts  recently  this  kind  of
sports has got the increasing popularity. For a long time  in  our  republic
was only one school, which was headed by Robert Gouchmazov.
    Today specialists talk about young  Osetian  "bogatyrs  such  as  Nart
Camakaev, Denis Forov,  Anzor  Totrov,  Valery  Cuckuev  and  Hasan  Baroev,
became twice Russian champion and world champion in young category of 97kg.
    In this weight Vladimir Uruimagov became an USSR champion, and  now  he
trains Hasan. Became Alexander Dulaev,  Rastislav  Budtuev,  became  Russian
winners, and now it is Hasan's turn. At the age of 17 he became a master  of
sport in ass at Greece-Roman wrestling style.  In 2001 Hasan changed  weight
category for l20 kg. In this category Alexander Karelin won his  coevals  in
Russia and in the world, and in 2002 he won Denis  Forov  who  won  European
competition. In 2003 Hasan won Rulon Gardner, who won Alexander  Karelin  on
Olympic Games.



                                  Nowadays
      The next congress of the best wrestlers in our planet took place  in
the suburb of French capital in Kretey. There were more people that  in  the
last  years,  as  the  price  of  the  Olympic  wins  became  higher.   Its
interesting that the gold medals went to five  countries.  And  only  Russia
has two the valuablest rounds. The  world  proud  to  our  country,  brought
Hasan Boroev and Aleksey Glushkov. But unfortunately  team  has  the  second
place. Its strange that in four categories our wrestlers have no  place  in
Olympic Games. Hasan Baroev the youngest world champion in  the  history  of
wrestlering .Paris was beautiful in that night. Our coaches were walking  on
its street and exulted   we  had  the  first  golden  medal.  Hasan  Boroev
brought it to us; Hasan became 21 an the 1st of December. In sprite  of  bad
results on the Europe championship, the main coach of our  team  took  Hasan
on the world championship. And Hasan won. He went to these  medals  a  tank.
But he collided with the wall at the 1/8 of the final this  wall  was  Rulon
Gardner. That, wrestlers won Aleksandr Karelin on Olympic  Games.  But  its
not all; in 2001 he became a world. Champion before the match  Gardner  said
that Hasan has a good technique, but he was sure that hell win.  Hasan  won
3:0 and this is all. Then Hasan easily won rivals one after  one.  The  last
match was the hardest and he won it 3:1.  Hasan  Boroev  is  a  disciple  of
Vladimir  Uruimagov,  his  another  wrestler  Denis  Forov  became  a  world
champion in his age category in Turkey, and Vladislav Kokoev  had  a  bronze
medal. In his interview to magazine Classical Wrestling  Hasan  said  that
he had been born in Dushanbe, but when he had  been  nine,  his  family  had
gone to Vladicavkas. And there in 1997 he met Vladimir Borisovich  Uruimagov
his family isnt small  three sisters,  fathers  Mahar,  mother  Raisa  and
