World Championships Begin Tomorrow

Budapest with Team USA as defending champions. We have an extremely tough team but Russia is highly motivated. Not only did they not win the team title last year but they didn't capture a single individual gold medal. Snyder defeating the Russian tank Sadulaev left a bad taste in their mouths.
This is going to be an unbelievable competition. I'm looking forward to a match between David Taylor and Yasdani from Iran. All of Russia is yearning for a rematch between Sadulaev and Kyle Snyder.

The seeding methodology is a joke. I understand what they were trying to accomplish but the seeding criteria needs to change immediately.

Burroughs is 4th seed and slated to face Chamizo in semis

Even crazier is 2nd seeded David Taylor drawing an unseeded Yazdani (Iran) in the first round.
Some people view Taylur as the hottest wrestler on the planet yet competing in his very first Senior World Championships, he draws an unseeded wrestler from Iran that happens to be (I believe) a two-time World Champion, one-time Olympic Champion. Brutal!

BUDAPEST, Hungary Ė Four U.S. menís freestyle wrestlers received their draws for the World Wrestling Championships, which begin on Saturday at the Papp Laszlo Arena.

At 74 kg/163 lbs., 2012 Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids/Nebraska WTC) received a No. 4 seed during the technical meeting prior to the draw. Burroughs opens against V. Juah of Liberia., who has no significant international achievements.

Because of his seed, Burroughs draws into his half-bracket the No. 1 seed, Frank Chamizo of Italy, a two-time World champion and Olympic bronze medalist, who Burroughs would face in the semifinals if they both advance. Also in Burroughsí half-bracket are 2011 World silver medalist Franklin Gomez of Puerto Rico and 2016 World bronze medalist Mostafa Hosseinkhani of Iran.

The opposite half-bracket includes two-time World bronze medalist Mandakhnaran Ganzorig of Mongolia, 2016 Olympic bronze medalist and 2017 World bronze medalist Soner Demirtas of Turkey, 2014 World bronze medalist Bekzod Abdurakmonov of Uzbekistan and 2017 World bronze medalist Yuhi Fujinami of Japan.

A 2012 Olympic champion, Burroughs owns four World Championship gold medals (2011, 2013, 2015, 2017) and a 2014 World bronze medal. He has made every U.S. World and Olympic team since 2011. Burroughs was a two-time NCAA champion and a Hodge Trophy winner for Nebraska, and hails from Sicklerville, N.J.

At 125 kg/275 lbs., 2017 World bronze medalist Nick Gwiazdowski (Raleigh, N.C./Titan Mercury WC/Wolfpack RTC) received the No. 1 seed. In his first match, he will face Zolboo Natsagsuren, who was fifth in 2017 World Championships. Gwiazdowski defeated Natsagsuren in the 2017 World bronze-medal bout, 6-1. There are eight athletes in Gwiazdowskiís half-bracket.

At 86 kg/189 lbs., David Taylor (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC) received the No. 2 seed and will face Olympic and World champion Hassan Yazdani Charati of Iran in his first match..

Editor's Note: The bracket initially shown at the draw had Taylor opening with a bye, but the bracket was corrected by UWW.

Yazdani Charati, who Taylor pinned in the 2017 World Cup, did not receive a seed, and randomly drew right next to Taylor in the bracket. Also in Taylorís half-bracket are 2018 Russian national champion Dauren Kurugliev and 2015 World bronze medalist Sandro Aminashvili of Georgia.

In the opposite half-bracket from Taylor are 2017 World silver medalist Boris Makoev of Slovakia and 2013 World bronze medalist Istvan Vereb of Hungary.

In the second round, he faces the winner of the preliminary bout between Ivan Bileichuk of Ukraine and Kairat Amirtayev of Kazakhstan. Bileichuk was 10th in the 2017 World Championships, while Amirtayev was fifth in the 2017 Medved International in Belarus.

Must be high expectations when Team USA goes 9-2 in morning round and it's disappointing.
All four wrestlers competing today for USA advanced to quarters unscathed but Burroughs and Gwiz drop close bouts and now must wait to see if they can be pulled back into repecharge.
Taylor won a huge match in first round beating Yazdani (Iran) 11-6 after being behind 6-2 at the break. Match can viewed on first page of Trackwrestling

Russia went 10-1 this morning advancing 3 entrants to semis

BY GARY ABBOTT, USA WRESTLING | OCT. 20, 2018


BUDAPEST, Hungary Ė Two U.S. menís freestyle wrestlers advanced to the semifinals during the opening morning session at the World Wrestling Championships on Saturday morning.

The USA stars winning in the quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals are first-time World Team members David Taylor (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC) at 86 kg/189 lbs. and Joe Colon (Fresno, Calif./Titan Mercury WC/Valley RTC) at 61 kg/134 lbs.

Taylor had perhaps his toughest test right off the bat, when he scored an exciting come-from-behind 11-6 win over 2016 Olympic champion and 2017 World champion Hassan Yazdani of Iran.

Taylorís opening bout was the second of the day on Mat C, and when the two warriors came to the mat, the cheer for Team USA was the loudest. Yazdani got off to a great start, jumping to a 3-0 lead on a takedown and a stepout. Taylor hit a sweet counter exposure to close it to 3-2, but Yazdani added a takedown and stepout to lead 6-2 at the break.

The second period was all Taylor. He scored three straight takedowns and forced a stepout to lead 9-6 with a minute to go. Yazdani was not able to convert on a final attempt, where Taylor won the scramble for another takedown as time ran out for the 11-6 win.

In his second round, Taylor battled dominated 2015 European Junior champion Hajy Rajabau of Belarus in a 10-0 technical fall.Taylor scored first on a shot clock violation against Rajabau, then added a takedown to lead 3-0 at the break. In the second period, Taylor forced a stepout, added a takedown and turn for an 8-0 lead. Add in one final takedown and it was a technical fall.

In his quarterfinals, Taylor defeated Cubaís Yurieski Torreblanca of Cuba, 8-0, controlling the action the entire match. Taylor jumped to a 5-0 lead at the break, on two takedowns and a stepout. In the second period, Taylor added another takedown and a stepout for the shutout win.

Taylor has drawn 2017 European champion Dauren Kurugliev of Russia in the semifinals. Taylor was a two-time NCAA champion and two-time Hodge Trophy winner for Penn State.

After receiving a first-round bye as the No. 4 seed, Joe Colon won his first World Championships bout with a comeback 9-6 victory over Ivan Bileichuk of Ukraine. Bileichuk popped a four-pointer to open the match, but Colon scored a reversal and turn to make it 4-3. Another Bileichuk takedown, followed by Colon forcing a stepout made it 6-4 at the break. In the second period, Colon took over, forcing a stepout and scoring two takedowns to secure the 9-6 victory.

Colon got his offense going strong in the quarterfinals, when he scored a 10-0 technical fall over 2013 World bronze medalist Vladimer Dubov of Bulgaria. Colon opened with a takedown and gut wrench for a 4-0 lead. He tossed Dubov for a four-pointer to lead 8-0, then closed out the win with another takedown.

Colon has drawn 2017 World bronze medalist Yowlys Bonne Rodriguez of Cuba n the semifinals. Colon was an All-American for Northern Iowa, and is now the volunteer assistant coach at Fresno State.

The USA pushed all four of its wrestlers competing this morning into the quarterfinals, but two were defeated: 2012 Olympic champion and four-time World champion Jordan Burroughs (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids/Nebraska WTC) at 74 kg/163 lbs. and Nick Gwiazdowski (Raleigh, N.C./Titan Mercury WC/Wolfpack RTC) at 125 kg/275 lbs.

Burroughs drew Venicious Juah of Liberia in the first round, but received a forfeit when the Liberian did not attend weigh-ins in the morning.

In his first actual bout of the day, Burroughs edged 2016 World bronze medalist Mostafa Hosseinkhani of Iran, 4-3, scoring on a stepout with 17 seconds left to break a 3-3 tie which he trailed on criteria. Burroughs was up 3-1, after scoring a first-period takedown, but Hosseinkhani scored a second-period takedown to tie it up. But Burroughs kept coming and got the winning point when he needed it.

Burroughs was defeated in a close quarterfinal battle by 2015 Junior World bronze medalist Zaurbek Sidakov of Russia, 6-5. The match went down to the final seconds. Tied 2-2 at the break, Burroughs took a 3-2 lead on a stepout. Sidakov took Burroughs down with 21 seconds left for a 4-3 lead. Burroughs answered with a takedown with eight seconds to go for a 5-4 lead. However, Sidakov forced a stepout with one second left for a 5-5 tie and the criteria win. The USA challenged the score, thinking time ran out, but the challenge was denied and the final score was 6-5.

Gwiazdowski opened with a solid 9-4 win over Zolboo Natsagsuren of Mongolia. Leading 3-2 at the break, Gwiazdowski scored three straight second-period takedowns to blast the match open. A late Natsagsuren takedown made it 9-4 for Gwiazdowski.

In the quarterfinals, Gwiazdowski dropped a tight 5-4 match to Chinaís Zhiwei Deng, who placed fifth at the 2013 World Championships. Gwiazdowski led 2-0 at the break on a takedown. In the second period, Gwiazdowski was put on the shot clock and gave up a point. Deng hit a four-point move to jump to a 5-2 lead, followed by a Gwiazdowski takedown to make it 5-4. He could not score in the final seconds, and Deng advanced to the semifinals.

The fate of both Burroughs and Gwiazdowski will be determined in the semifinals. If their opponents win, they will be drawn into Sundayís repechage rounds. A loss by their quarterfinal opponents would knock them out of the tournament.

ďThereís mixed emotions. Happy for our guys that made it to the semis, and for those guys that didnít make it to the semis, we know itís the World Championships. Itís the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. Itís really a roller coaster. You love your guys and want them to achieve because theyíve put a lot of work into it and we all do. Thatís what makes success so fun and so exciting. When they donít have the success and achievements that they want, it doesnít decrease the value of those guys to me. I feel for them. Moving on is really the only choice that we have at this point. We have to adjust and move forward. Jordan and Nick didnít end up where they want to be, but they still have a chance to come back and win medals,Ē said National Freestyle Coach Bill Zadick.

Georgia and Russia both pushed three wrestlers into the semifinal rounds.

The semifinal round begins at 4:45 p.m. Budapest time, which is six hours ahead of U.S. Eastern time zone. The event is broadcast live on TrackWrestling.

The two guys that narrowly defeated JB and Gwiz just advanced to Championship matches pulling JB and Gwiz into repecharge rounds. Both are still capable of earning Bronze. Burroughs would need to defeat Frank Chamizo ( Italy - Cuba) in Bronze match.

Joe Colon was defeated by the Cuban in semis and now advances directly to Bronze match.

David Taylor continues his phenominal march through his bracket and into the championship. He's enjoying a fantastic tournament

Russia and Georgia are both doing quite well in the team race

BUDAPEST, Hungary Ė Competing in his first Senior World Championships, David Taylor (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC) powered through his half-bracket to qualify for the gold-medal finals at 86 kg/189 lbs.

In the semifinals, Taylor scored an impressive, come-from-behind victory over Russian National champion Dauren Kurugliev, 7-5 and celebrated to the roar of the American fans.

Kurugliev had a strong first period, jumping to a 5-1 lead at the break, after scoring two takedowns and forcing a stepout, while Taylor only scored on a stepout. In the second period, Taylor rallied with two takedowns to tie the match at 5-5, giving him the tiebreaking criteria. In the final seconds, Taylor converted another takedown to close out the win with one last score.

ďIím just going to keep coming every single match. Thatís why I train. I have amazing training partners at home. I have amazing coaches. I have an amazing strength and conditioning program at the Treigning Lab. I just have to go out and wrestle. I was put through one of the toughest draws I could have ever imagined, but nothing is different. Every tournament Iíve been to, Iíve had a tough draw. Iím one match away from being a World champion, and thatís something Iíve dreamt about for a really, really long time. I donít care how I feel right now. Iím ready to roll for tomorrow,Ē said Taylor.

On Sunday night, Taylor will battle Fatih Erdin of Turkey, the No. 1 seed, who like Taylor is competing in his first Senior World Championships. Erdin was fifth in the 2018 European Championships, and won four international medals this year. Taylor had the No. 2 seed coming in.

Taylor opened his tournament in the morning session with a big 11-6 win over Olympic and World champion Hassan Yazdani Charati of Iran, 11-6. He shut down his next two opponents, beating Hajy Rajabau of Belarus in a 10-0 technical fall and then stopping Yurieski Torreblanca of Cuba, 8-0 in the quarterfinals.

Taylor won two NCAA titles and two Hodge Trophies competing for Penn State.

Qualifying for the bronze-medal round match is Joe Colon (Fresno, Calif./Titan Mercury WC/Valley RTC) at 61 kg/134 lbs. Colon was defeated in the semifinals by Pan American rival and two-time World bronze medalist Yowlys Bonne Rodriguez of Cuba, 9-4.

Colon trailed 5-0 at the break, as he gave up one point on the shot clock and Bonne also hit a four-point throw at the end of the first period. In the second period, a four-point Bonne body lock extended it to 9-0. Colon scored the final four points, but was not able to change the result.

Colon won twice on Saturday morning, beating Ivan Bileichuk of Ukraine, 9-6 and Vladimir Dubov of Bulgaria, 10-0, to qualify for the semifinals. Colon had the No. 4 seed in the weight class.

In his bronze-medal bout, Colon will face the winner of the repechage match between Mohammedbagher Yakhkeshi of Iran and Ivan Guidea of Romania. Colon, an All-American at Northern Iowa, is a replacement for the injured Nahshon Garrett, and is competing in his first Senior Worlds.

Two U.S. stars were pulled back into Sundayís repechage rounds when the opponent who defeated them in the quarterfinals advanced to the finals: 2012 Olympic champion and four-time World champion Jordan Burroughs (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids/Nebraska WTC) at 74 kg/163 lbs. and 2017 World bronze medalist Nick Gwiazdowski, Raleigh, N.C. (Titan Mercury WC/Wolfpack RTC) at 125 kg/275 lbs.

Burroughs was pulled back into repechage, after Zaurbek Sidakov of Russia scored a late takedown to edge two-time World champion Frank Chamizo of Italy, 3-2. Sidakov had beaten Burroughs 6-5 in the quarterfinals.

Burroughs will face the winner of the repechage bout between Franklin Gomez Matos of Puerto Rico and Miroslav Kirov of Bulgaria. Gomez was an NCAA champion for Michigan State, and trains with the Nittany Lion WC in the United States.

Burroughs has won six World-level medals in his career, an Olympic gold, four World golds and a World bronze medal. He was a two-time NCAA champion and a Hodge Trophy winner for Nebraska.

Gwiazdowski received new life when Zhiwei Deng of China controlled Sumit of India, 5-0 in the semifinals. Deng had edged Gwiazdowski 5-4 in the quarterfinals.

In repechage, Gwiazdowski will wrestle 2014 Junior World champion Amar Dhesi of Canada, who was a Div. I All-American for Oregon State.

ďNot a bad spot with everyone wrestling tomorrow for medals. Itís less than what we anticipated, knowing the stars that we have and the star power we had wrestling today. Thatís reality. Thatís why the World Championships are what they are and why itís so exciting to wrestle, compete and do well. We still have a chance to do some great things and win a lot of medals tomorrow and start with four new weights. Big tomorrow, really big day tomorrow,Ē said National Freestyle Coach Bill Zadick.

The repechage begins at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow, as well as the preliminary action for four new weight classes. In addition to the four athletes from today, Team USA will have Jíden Cox (92 kg), Logan Stieber (65 kg), Thomas Gilman (57 kg) and Kyle Dake (79 kg) taking the mat.

The semifinals for the new weights are at 5:45 p.m., with the finals of the first four weight beginning at 7:00 p.m. Budapest is six hours ahead of the U.S. Eastern time zone.

The event is broadcast live on TrackWrestling.

All four wrestlers from Group One have qualified for medal matches. Colon, JB and Gwiz are competing in Bronze match while David Taylor is wrestling for Gold in his first time wrestling at the World Championships.
Great job by our Group One Guys.

JB wrestles Chamizo for the Bronze. Should be a great match

BUDAPEST, Hungary Ė By winning their repechage matches, 2012 Olympic champion and four-time World champion Jordan Burroughs (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids/Nebraska WTC) at 74 kg/163 lbs. and 2017 World bronze medalist Nick Gwiazdowski (Raleigh, N.C./Titan Mercury WC/Wolfpack RTC) at 125 kg/275 lbs. qualified for a bronze-medal match on Sunday night in their weight class.

Burroughs secured a 9-0 victory over Miroslav Kirov of Bulgaria in his repechage match. Burroughs forced a pair of first-period stepouts to lead 2-0 at the break. In the second period, he added a takedown, two gut wrenches and a stepout to seal the dominant win.

Burroughs will face two-time World champion and Olympic bronze medalist Frank Chamizo of Italy in the bronze-medal match. Burroughs and Chamizo have met twice this season, splitting their bouts. Burroughs beat Chamizo 8-5 at the Beat the Streets Benefit in New York City in May. Chamizo beat Burroughs in a 10-10 criteria decision in the finals of the Yasar Dogu International in Turkey in July.

Gwiazdowski was in control on the way to a 7-0 victory over 2014 Junior World champion Amar Dhesi of Canada. Gwiazdowski set the tone in the first period, scoring two takedowns and receiving a point from a shot clock violation by Dhesi, to take a 5-0 lead at the break. Gwiazdowski added a crotch lift turn in the second period for his final two points. Dhesi was a Div. I All-American for Oregon State

Gwiazdowski will battle Sumit of India in the bronze-medal match on Sunday night. Sumit was a 2018 Commonwealth Games champion and a 2017 Asian Senior silver medalist.

Gwiazdowski was a two-time NCAA champion for NC State in college. He is competing on his second straight

With the repechage wins, the U.S. will now have four wrestlers going for medals from the first group of athletes, as David Taylor (State College, Pa./Nittany Lion WC) will compete in a gold-medal match at 86 kg/189 lbs. and Joe Colon (Fresno, Calif./Titan Mercury WC/Valley RTC) will compete in a bronze-medal match at 61 kg/134 lbs.

Colonís opponent in his bronze-medal match was determined in the repechage, as Mohammedbagher Yakhkeshi of Iran won his match over Ivan Guidea of Romania to qualify for the bronze-medal round. Yakhkeshi was a champion at the 2018 Yasar Dogu International in Turkey.

Taylor, the No. 2 seed, is the other U.S. competitor competing tonight, going for the gold-medal against No. 1 seed Fatih Erdin of Turkey. Erdin was second in the 2018 Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix.

The finals are set for 7:00 p.m. in Budapest. (It follows the 5:45 p.m. semifinals from Group 2). All of the action is live on TrackWrestling.com. Budapest is six hours ahead of U.S. Eastern time.

The four Team USA wrestlers comprising Group Two have been on a rampage today.

Going 9-1 thus far advancing 3 of 4 to semi finals.
Gilman, Dake and Cox all wrestle in semi while Stieber lost to a Russian first round and waits to see if he gets pulled back in tournament.

Dake is wrestling lights out and has a feature match with a heavily favored Russian in semi. Many picked the Russian to win the tournament before competition began. But Dake has been extremely impressive and it should be an outstanding match


Current Team Score
1. 90 Russia
2. 80 USA
3. 50 Georgia
3 50 Iran
