Oksana Wassyliwna Herhel ( Ukrainian Оксана Василівна Гергель , scientific. Transliteration Oksana Vasylivna Herhel' * 20th June 1994 in ivanychi , Oblast Volyn , Ukraine ) is a Ukrainian wrestler . In 2015 she became world champion in the weight class up to 60 kg.
Oksana Herhel's talent for wrestling was discovered at her school when she was a young girl. She has been wrestling since 2005 and weighed just 30 kg at the time. She belongs to the Dynamo Lviv sports club and has so far been coached by Iwan Paliy, Juri Kopotko and Andre Pistun. The athlete, who is now 1.65 meters tall and weighs around 63 kg, is a student and currently earns her living by wrestling.
In 2010 Oksana Herhel took part in an international championship for the first time. At the Junior European Championship (Cadets) in Sarajevo she won a silver medal in the weight class up to 49 kg behind Kamala Aliyeva from Azerbaijan. In August 2011 she became Junior European Champion (Cadets) in Warsaw in the weight class up to 60 kg, ahead of Luzie Manzke from Germany.
In 2012 she won a bronze medal at the Junior World Championships (Juniors) in Pattaya in the weight class up to 59 kg behind Chiho Hamada from Japan and Hafize Sahin from Turkey. She won another bronze medal at the European Junior Championships (Juniors) in Skopje in the weight class up to 59 kg.
In 2014 Oksana Herhel started at the international championships for senior women. But she stayed both at the European Championships in Vantaa, where she lost her first fight against Tajbe Jusein from Bulgaria in the weight class up to 60 kg , and at the World Championships in Tashkent, where she was back in the same weight class after defeating Salamat Kuchimowa from Uzbekistan against Tajbe Jusein lost without medals.
In March 2015 she started at the U23 European Championships in Wałbrzych, Poland. In the weight class up to 60 kg she won her first fight against Jowita Wrzesien from Poland, then lost to Petra Olli from Finland, but then secured a bronze medal with a victory over Wiktoria Bobewa from Bulgaria. At the 1st European Games in Baku in 2015, she started again in the weight class up to 60 kg and defeated Johanna Mattsson from Sweden there. But then she lost against the ex-world champion Marianna Sastin from Hungary and against her feared opponent Tajbe Jusein and took 5th place.
The 2015 World Cup in Las Vegas became the highlight of her career so far. Oksana Herhel defeated Breanne Leigh Graham from Canada in the weight class up to 60 kg, her Ukrainian compatriot Irina Netreba , who started for Azerbaijan , Leigh Jaynes provisional from the United States and in the final Tserenchimed Sukhee from Mongolia and thus surprisingly won the world title for many.
In March 2016, she took second place behind Petra Olli from Finland at the European Championships in Riga in the weight class up to 60 kg . Since the weight class up to 60 kg body weight was not Olympic at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, she first had to qualify for participation in these games in the Olympic weight class up to 58 kg. She succeeded in doing this in April 2016 at a qualifying tournament in Zrenjanin, where she finished 2nd in this weight class behind Mimi Christowa from Bulgaria.
In April 2016, the World Wrestling Federation UWW was informed by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) that Oksana Herhel's doping test at this qualification tournament for the heart drug meldonium, which is on the doping list, was positive. It was recommended that Oksana Herhel's starting right be revoked at the 2016 Olympic Games. Oksana Herhel was then "temporarily" banned by UWW. Strangely enough, this ban was lifted by UWW in July 2016, so that Oksana Herhel was able to compete in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in the weight class up to 58 kg. She met Julija Ratkewitsch from Azerbaijan in the round of 16 , against whom she lost on points (5-7). Since Julija Ratkewitsch did not reach the final, Oksana Herhel was eliminated and only came in 13th place.
In March 2017 she started in Szombathely at the U23 European Championships and won a bronze medal there in the weight class up to 60 kg.
Since then, Oksana Herhel has not competed in any international championships.
