Olympic Champ Khinchegashvili Loses Twice In One Day

Olympic gold medalist Vladimer Khinchegashvili was one of a few stars competing this weekend in Russia, but he had a day he'd like to soon forget.

In the semifinals against Yarygin runner-up Ismail Musukaev (RUS), he lost a very controversial 6-6 match on criteria, which you can watch below.

Hoping to bounce back in his bronze medal match, the three-time world medalist was hit with a high flyer in the first period. Watch him lose to relatively unheralded Rustam Abdurashidov below.
