Already an Olympoc champion in te 85 kg category at the Atlanta games of 1996, and several times world champion, this Turkish wrestler is today considered to be one of the great figures in his discipline after another gold medal in Sydney.It should be said that Yerlikaya, originally from Anatolia, holds wrestling in high esteem. This sport is symbolic of his country and its great past, a golden age that is much different from the situation today, much to the champion's regret .
