Estonian freestyle women's wrestler Epp Mäe won bronze at the World Championship in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, ERR's online sports portal reports.

Mäe defeated Zhou Quian (China) 6:4, having already secured a place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in her category (76 kilogram) by getting to the semi-finals.

Mäe was defeated in that semi by Hiroe Suzuki (Japan) which took her to the bronze bout, where she took an early lead 2:0, only for Quian to come back to 4:2. However things see-sawed the other way thereafter and Mäe emerged victorious.
