I notice two spellings Lomadze and Lomidze. Hard to say if it's just google translate making a mistake or if difficulties going from cyrillic. But when I saw Lomidze I remembered an Olympic wrestler Shota Lomidze from the 60s. We used to call him Shorty! I wonder if related.

As we are speaking about crime, Nurmagomed Gadzhiev is under investigation for murder. He is one of Azerbaijan's 97kg guys. 

Wrestling News: Twin European medallist Nurmagomed Gadhziev is suspected for murder. The Dagestan native has allegedly murdered Abdulbasir Omarov during an altercation, reported WrestlinUA, Russian news daily. The incident occurred in Dagestan after which the Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation (AWF) contacted the suspect’s relatives. They said that Omarov died in the ‘domestic conflict’, but added that Gadhziev was just an eyewitness to the crime. “As far as we know, he did not shoot Omarov. We will wait for the results of the investigation,” the report quoted the AWF.

Sadrudin Aigubov, the wrestler’s personal coach has also denied that Gadzhiev had anything to do with the alleged murder. “Nurmagomed was in an absolutely stupid situation, and he is not at fault for what happened. Just close relatives asked him to come and support during the conflict. He arrived and ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. A lot of guys participated in the conflict, about 20 men, and they all got on the surveillance cameras. Now the proceedings are ongoing. And so, the guy is not to blame for anything (Sic.),” the report added.

Gadzhiev is two-time European bronze medallist and once European Games silver medallist. He competes for Azerbaijan in the light heavyweight division –97kg freestyle.
