Soslan Magomedovich Gattsiev (Uzbek: Сослан Магометович Гатциев; born September 27, 1985 in Andijan, Uzbekistan) is an amateur Belarusian freestyle wrestler of Uzbek origin, who competes in the men's light heavyweight category.[1][2] Gattsiev represented Belarus at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where he competed in the 84 kg class. He lost the semifinal match to Puerto Rico's Jaime Espinal, with a score of 2–15.[3] Gattsiev, however, was offered another shot for the bronze medal bout in the repechage, where he was eventually outclassed and beaten by reigning European champion Dato Marsagishvili of Georgia, with a set-score of 0–3 and 1–3.[4][5]
