Question RE: Russian Women's Wrestling

Recommended Posts

I have watched a handful of events for Russian girls/wrestling events streamed on YouTube.  While it was not as much as the boy/men, I was surprised how many were competing.

 

I was a little surprised they weren't better in  this Olympics.  Are they just further behind the curve and likely to see more of an impact in the future?

It might have something to do with the regions of the country where wrestling is most valued. Do women from Dagestan compete in other sports? I doubt a region that practices female genital mutilation also promotes women to compete in sport.
