Püreviin Dagvasüren

Püreviin Dagvasüren (Mongolian: Пүрэвийн Дагвасүрэн; June 13, 1943 – September 19, 2014)[1] was a Mongolian traditional wrestler with the top rank of "lion". He also participated in the 1972 Summer Olympics as a heavyweight Judoka, but did not win any medal.[2][3] He was born in Batsümber.

The IOC database incorrectly lists Dagvasüren as bronze medalist in the freestyle wrestling welterweight category at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico.[4] In reality, that medal was taken home by fellow Mongolian wrestler Tömöriin Artag.[2][5]
