World Wrestling Championships


Recommended Posts

Team USA had a good showing winning 3 gold, a silver, and 3 bronze medals.  Their best performance in a long time.

The match of the tournament was between two Olympic and world champions, Kyle Snyder and Sadulaev (Russia). Last year Sadulaev moved up a weight class to face Kyle Snyder.  The Russian was destroying everyone in his weight class, so he challenged Snyder.   Kyle Snyder ended up winning the match in a close 6-5 decision.

Snyder was trash talking by saying that he would beat the Russian by a bigger score than last year and that Sadulaev should never have moved up to his weight class.

In this years tournament, Sadulaev was destroying everyone by scores of 11-0, 14-3, 10-0, and 10-0 on route to the final.  While Kyle Snyder had a tougher time getting to the final, winning 8-3, 10-0, 11-2, and 3-0.  In the final, Sadulaev got his revenge, by pinning Kyle in 70 seconds.

Here are other results if anyone is interested.  Can't find any videos of this match though.
