Watch out ! The Georgian school hit again ! Its new top graduate ? Guram Tushishvili, 6 ft 3, 253 lbs, very mobile for his weight, able to launch attack from any side.
Freshly landed in the Senior division, he did not skip any classes. He was U17 World champion in 2011, U21 European champion in 2013 and 2015 (3rd in 2012), he first had to push out the brave Georgian veteran, Adam Okruashvili (28 years old), winner of the European Games in 2015, 3rd of the 2015 Worlds and five times continental medallist !
From then on, nothing has stopped him to the top. Winner of the Baku Grand Slam in 2017, he became the European heavyweight champion two months later. With his country, he also won the team title in Varsaw, in which he had taken an important part by winning the last and decisive fight to give the victory to his teammates.
When he arrives at the Budapest World championships in late August 2017, Guram Tushishvili is expected as a messiah, as the one who may dethrone God Riner. He almost did it in the semi-final ! Never since his last lost in September 2010 (againt Kamikawa), the two times Olympic champion and ten times World one was so much threatened and worried ! The Georgian, after faltering the icon, was defeated during the Golden Score. He then lost against the Mongolian Naidan for the bronze medal and ranked 5th for his first Worlds. He has already rain check for next time. At 22 years old (he was born on May 5th, 1995), Guram Tushishvili is ready for a Golden future. Time is on his side… And if he was the one who takes down the King ?
