Top U.S. stars to battle at Golden Grand Prix Final in Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 24-26
By Taylor Miller, USA Wrestling | Nov. 21, 2016, 6:20 p.m. (ET)

USA Wrestling is sending an exciting American squad to Baku, Azerbaijan, to compete in the Golden Grand Prix Final, including 2016 Olympian Frank Molinaro and Non-Olympic Weight World Team members Patrick Martinez and Sarah Hildebrandt. Competition is scheduled to begin on Nov. 24, Thanksgiving Day, with men’s freestyle, followed by women’s freestyle on Friday and Greco-Roman on Saturday.

Molinaro, who broke out as an American freestyle star this year, recently wrapped up his first Olympic Games with a fifth-place finish at 65 kg, getting edged out by 2015 World champion Frank Chamizo in the bronze-medal bout. In addition to the Olympics, Molinaro has seen tons of international competition over the last few months, winning medals at the Pan-American Championships and Germany Grand Prix as well as going undefeated at the Men’s Freestyle World Cup.

He’ll be surrounded by freestyle talent in two-time World Team member Tony Ramos, 2015 World Team member Zach Rey and internationally experienced Alan Waters, Austin Trotman, Richard Perry, J.T. Felix and Dustin Kilgore.

Greco-Roman star Martinez has been one of the busiest competitors this year, medaling at several international tournaments, including bronzes from the Pan-American Championships, Grand Prix of Spain, Pytlasinski International and Grand Prix Zagreb Open.

He recently made his second Senior World Team, taking the 80 kg spot for the Non-Olympic Weight World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, in December. Martinez was also a World Team member in 2015. This weekend, he is expected to compete at 85 kg.

Other Greco wrestlers joining him are Pan-American Championships gold medalists Pat Smith (2015) at 71 kg and Cheney Haight (2016) at 80 kg.

Hildebrandt made her first Senior World Team in early-November for the World Championships in December at 55 kg, defeating Whitney Conder in a best two-of-three finals series.

The two-time Junior World Team member won two silver medals in both international tournaments she competed in this year, including the Klippan Lady Open and the Dave Schultz Memorial International.

She is joined by a star-studded women’s freestyle roster, including 2012 Olympian and 2016 Olympic Team Trials champion Kelsey Campbell, 2016 Olympic Team Trials champion Tamyra Mensah, three-time World Team member Whitney Conder and two-time Junior World champion Victoria Anthony.

The event provides prize money to medalists, including $5,000 for gold, $3,000 for silver and $1,000 for bronze.

United World Wrestling is expected to live stream the event.

Fans can also follow the action daily on TheMat.com and through USA Wrestling’s social media outlets.

Let's not sugar-coat it - a terrible showing by USA men's Freestyle team this weekend at the last Grand Prix event of the year.
Waters wins bronze to highlight U.S. men's freestyle performance at Golden Grand Prix Final in Baku

By Richard Immel, USA Wrestling | Nov. 24, 2016, 1:22 p.m. (ET)

BAKU, Azerbaijan – Winning a bronze medal at 61 kg/134 lbs., Alan Waters highlighted what was an otherwise rough outing for the U.S. men’s freestyle contingent at the Golden Grand Prix Final on Thanksgiving Day.

Waters, the lone U.S. medalist on the day, dropped his opening bout to 2014 World bronze medalist Yowlys Bonne Rodriguez of Cuba in a tight one, 6-4. The Missourian battled back to defeat 2011 Cadet World silver medalist Husein Shakhbanau of Belarus in the bronze-medal match, 2-1.

It has been quite the 2016 season for Waters who picked up his second international medal in a month’s time. He also finished with a bronze at the Intercontinental Cup in mid-October. Waters finished in fourth-place at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials while competing at 57 kg/125.5 lbs. and was the Dave Schultz Memorial International champion in January.

The only other American to reach a medal match in Baku was Dusting Kilgore at 97 kg/213 lbs. Kilgore finished in third place at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials and is fresh off of winning the Bill Farrell International.

Similar to Waters, Kilgore fell in his first-round match to a Cuban rival. Three-time World medalist Reineris Salas Perez took out Kilgore by an 11-0 margin. With Salas Perez navigating to the finals, Kilgore entered the repechage where he defeated Roman Bakirov of Azerbaijan, 5-2. Kilgore then surrendered his second technical fall of the day to 2011 Junior World bronze medalist Aslanbek Alborov of Azerbaijan in the bronze bout, 11-0, to wind up in fifth place.

Olympian Frank Molinaro looked solid early against Azerbaijan’s Military World champion Aghahuseyn Mustafayev, leading 2-0 at the break. The tide turned in the second period and Molinaro went down by a 7-2 final. Mustafayev did not reach the finals ending Molinaro’s day. This was Molinaro’s first competition back since finishing in fifth place at the Olympic Games.

Past World Team members Tony Ramos and Zach Rey opened with strong wins over Azerbaijani foes. Ramos edged 2014 Junior World silver medalist Mirjalal Hasan-Zada on criteria, 2-2. Rey also won by a 2-2 tally over 2008 Olympian Ali Isayev. Both men dropped their second-round matches by one point and were eliminated.

Competing at 97 kg, J.T. Felix secured an impressive 5-0 win over 2016 Junior World silver medalist and European bronze medalist Erik Thiele of Germany to start his day. Unfortunately, Felix was ousted from the tournament in his next match by Alborov, 6-2.

Bill Farrell International medalists Austin Trotman and Richard Perry combined to go 1-2 for the U.S. at 86 kg/189 lbs. Trotman lost 8-0 to 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Dato Marsagishvili of Georgia in the first round. Perry made quick work of New Zealand’s Toby Fitzpatrick, 10-0, before falling to Ahmet Bilici of Turkey, 6-2.

Competition from the Golden Grand Prix Final will continue tomorrow with the women’s freestyle tournament. Action will begin in Baku at 10 a.m. local time, which translates to 1 a.m. Eastern Time.

USA women freestylers perform marginally better than their male counterparts in the Grand Prix in Baku -

Mensah snags silver, Anthony wins bronze at Golden Grand Prix Final
By Richard Immel, USA Wrestling | Nov. 25, 2016, 12:57 p.m. (ET)

BAKU, Azerbaijan – The U.S. women picked up two medals on Friday at the Golden Grand Prix Final with Tamyra Mensah earning a silver at 69 kg/152 lbs. and Victoria Anthony grabbing a bronze at 48 kg/105.5 lbs.

Mensah started her day with three-straight wins over quality international foes. She opened with a second-period fall over Pan American runner-up Yudari Sanchez Rodriguez of Cuba and a 4-2 decision over two-time Junior World bronze medalist Elis Manolova of Azerbaijan. In the semifinals, Mensah dominated 2016 Olympic bronze medalist Elmira Syzdykova to the tune of 12-4.

Standing opposite Mensah in the championship bout was six-time Cadet and Junior World champion Masako Furuichi of Japan. Furuichi has been proclaimed the next big thing in Japanese women’s wrestling, and she held her own in Baku today. Furuichi topped Mensah 11-4 to win the 69 kg gold.

After earning a silver today, Mensah now owns six international medals this year. She earned bronze at the Olympic Test Event, 1st World Olympic Games Qualifier, 2nd World Olympic Games Qualifier, Canada Cup and Grand Prix of Spain. Mensah was the U.S. Olympic Team Trials champion at 69 kg.

Anthony also posted a 3-1 record on the day as she navigated to her bronze medal. She won three matches by technical fall while surrendering no points. Anthony’s only loss came to 2016 Olympic bronze medalist and 2013 World champion Yanan Sun of China, 8-2. The talented American topped World Military champion Emilia Vuc 11-0 in the 48 kg bronze-medal match.

Like Mensah, Anthony also earned her sixth international medal for 2016 today in Baku. She earned gold medals at the Dave Schultz Memorial International, Klippan Lady Open, Canada Cup and Bill Farrell International. In addition, Anthony was a bronze-medal winner at the Grand Prix of Spain. Anthony was runner-up at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials at 48 kg.

Three other veteran wrestlers took the mat for Team USA on Friday. However, none were able to pull out a win in their respective brackets.

Two weeks prior to competing at the Non-Olympic Weight World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, 55 kg/121 lbs. U.S. World Team member Sarah Hildebrandt lost her opening bout to 2016 Olympian Katarzyna Krawczyk of Poland, 4-2.

Three-time U.S. World Team member Whitney Conder dropped a 6-2 decision to the up-and-coming Natalia Malysheva of Russia in her only match at 53 kg/116.5 lbs. Malysheva was a Junior World champion in 2014 and a European U23 champion this year.

2012 Olympian and 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials champion Kelsey Campbell ran into a tough Chinese opponent, Zhangting Zhou, in the first round at 58 kg/127.5 lbs. Campbell battled hard but was unable to secure the win, losing 4-2.

Competition from the Golden Grand Prix Final will conclude tomorrow with the Greco-Roman tournament. Action will begin in Baku at 10 a.m. local time, which translates to 1 a.m. Eastern Time.
