Hall Saves Best for Last to Defend Jr Freestyle World C'ship Crown
By William May
August 1, 2017 - 22:07

TAMPERE, Finland (August 1) – Mark HALL (USA) capped the defense of his world title with his best match of the day, pinning challenger Isa SHAPIEV (UZB) in the 74kg freestyle final Tuesday, the opening day of the Junior Wrestling World Championships.

After a few offensive struggles in the morning session, Hall uncorked his finest for the gold medal bout, cranking Asian junior silver medalist Shapiev over with a front headlock and converting to a half-nelson and body press in midair to complete the fall at 0:50 of the first period.

“I had some troubles offensively in the morning, but defensively I felt great,” Hall said. Asked about saving his best match for the final, Hall responded “I didn’t plan it that way, but I’ll take it.”

As for winning his second title, the double champion said that last year’s triumph in Macon (FRA) was “fulfilling” after a ninth-place finish in 2015.

“This year was a just as good,” Hall said, adding “But, this year we’re focusing on a team title. We have a great team and as one of the older wrestlers, I guess I’m kind of a leader for the guys.”

In the morning session, Hall notched four one-sided wins including a technical fall over Asian junior champion Mohammad MOTTAGHINIA (IRI) in the quarterfinals and stopped European junior bronze medalist Muhammet KUCUKYILDIRIM (TUR), 10-3, in the semifinals.

With Hall’s victory, the United States freestyle squad grabbed a share of the first-day lead in the team standings with 30 points. Russia also has 30 points and enjoys the tie-break advantage with two gold medalists.
Russia received gold medal efforts from Abdula AKHMEDOV (60kg), who wrapped up Mitchell McKEE (USA) by fall in the 60kg final, and Shamil MUSAEV (96), who stopped a bid by European junior and under-23 champion Givi MATCHARASHVILI (GEO) for his third age-group title of the year at 96kg.

In addition to Hall and McKee, the U.S. also got a bronze medal from Kollin MOORE (96kg).

Meanwhile, in the bronze medal matches at 74kg, Veer Dev GULIA (IND) overcame a 2-5 deficit to Yajuro YAMASAKI (JPN) with a late rally for an 8-5 win. Mottaghinia scored a takedown midway through the first period and converted with a cross-ankle lock-and-turn for an 11-0 technical fall over Muhammet KUCUKYILDIRIM (TUR).

At 60kg, European bronze medalist Akhmedov dumped McKee to his back with an arm-and-leg throw (fireman’s carry), then wrapped his opponent up with a cross-knee lock for the fall at 1:00 and the gold medal.

In the bronze medal bouts, Asian silver medalist Yones EMAMICHOGHAEI (IRI) fashioned a technical fall over Eriglent PRIZRENI (ALB), capping his victory with a takedown and gut wrench. Hiromi SAKAKI (JPN) opened with a pair of double-leg attacks against Ravinder RAVINDER (IND) and then added a series of step-out points for a 9-6 win.
At, 96kg, Musaev scored three separate outside single-leg attacks and European junior champion Matcharashvili had no answer as Musaev secured Russia’s second title of the evening’s finale, 7-2.

In the bronze medal matches at 96kg, Moore broke open a hard-fought match with a double-leg and gut wrench in the first 15 seconds of the second period and secured the 11-0 technical fall over Ilja MATUHIN (GER). Ibrahim CIFTCI (TUR) took a 4-0 lead with a takedown at the end of the first period and added a late go-behind for a 7-0 win over Sargis HOVSEPYAN (ARM).

At 50kg, Shahin MUKHTAROV (AZE) spotted European bronze medalist Karen ZURABYAN (ARM) a passivity point in the first period but came back with a duck-under takedown and gut wrench for a 4-1 lead at intermission. The European silver medalist then cruised to a 7-5 win as both wrestlers moved up one place on the junior world medals podium.

In the bronze medal bouts, 2016 Asian cadet bronze medalist Akbar KENZHEBEK ULUU (KGZ) came out of a late scramble with Aslan MINKAILOV (RUS) for the fall at 5:50. Asian junior champion NARMANDAKH Nasanbuyan (MGL) defeated Rakhat KALZHAN (KAZ), 6-2, with the help of takedowns in each period.

Fix, Deakin, Valencia, Steveson advance to finals at Junior Worlds
InterMat Staff


TAMPERE, Finland -- Four-for-four. 14-0.

That's how the American freestyle team fared in Wednesday's first session at the Junior World Championships in Tampere, Finland. Team USA put all four wrestlers in the finals, going 14-0 in the process.

Daton Fix (55 kilograms), Ryan Deakin (66 kilograms), Zahid Valencia (84 kilograms) and Gable Steveson (120 kilograms) advanced to the finals on Day 2.

Team USA's freestyle team has now secured seven medals in eight classes at the Junior World Championships.

Russia had three finalists on Wednesday and will go head-to-head with USA in all but one of the finals matches.

Fix, a returning Junior world bronze medalist, was unscored upon with four technical falls en route to reaching the gold-medal match at 55 kilograms. His most notable victory was a 10-0 round of 16 win over returning Junior world champion Afgan Khashalov of Azerbaijan. In the finals Fix will face Russia's Ismail Gadzhiev, a past European champion and Youth Olympic Games champion.

Gable Steveson had four technical falls in four matches in the first session
Steveson, a two-time Cadet world champion, had four technical falls in four matches on his way to reaching the finals at 120 kilograms. The high school senior and nation's top wrestling recruit had not given up a point until his semifinal match against Zaur Kozonov (Russia), a match he won 21-10. Steveson's finals opponent is Naeiim Rah Hassanzadeh of Iran.

Zahid Valencia reached the finals at 84 kilograms
Valencia opened his tournament by beating Gadzhimura Magomedsaidov of Azerbaijan 11-2, avenging a loss from last year's Junior World Championships. The match was competitive early, but Valencia turned it up in the second period, scoring three takedowns to win by nine. He followed up that win with two technical falls, with his semifinal victory coming over Deepak Punia of India. Valencia now faces Russia's Artur Naifonov, who won by technical fall in all but one of his matches.

Deakin was a major surprise for Team USA, reaching the finals of the Junior World Championships in his first international wrestling tournament. He was a fifth-place finisher in Fargo a year ago. Deakin, who wrestles at Northwestern, opened with a technical fall. In his quarterfinal match, Deakin found himself in a 6-0 hole after the opening period against Mongolia's Temuulen Enkhtuya. The American battled back in the second period, picking up three takedowns to take the victory. He rode that momentum to a convincing 10-2 semifinal victory over Amirhossei Hosseini of Iran. Tonight Deakin meets David Baev of Russia, a past Cadet world champ and European champ. Baev was unchallenged in the opening session, getting four technical falls in four matches.

The final session on Wednesday is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. local time, 11 a.m. ET.

Finals Results as reported by FLO (They do an outstanding job of reporting - worth every nickel).

Daton Fix gets the tech over 2015 Junior Euro champ Ismail Gadzhiev in his 55kg final. One win away from a team title, and Daton finally gets his world title. Ryan Deakin loses 2016 Junior Euro champ David Baev at 66kg and ends with silver. Zahid Valencia loses to Artur Naifonov. Gable Steveson did it. He won his third world title and sealed the deal for Team USA, winning their first team title since 1984.

Bazrigahaeh now fights through a whizzer of Gocen and methodically gets a go behind for 2. 4-2 in favor of Turkey after 2 minutes. Until the Iranian gets another go behind to tie the score, Gocen with criteria though. But not for long. Another two for Bazrighaleh makes its 6-4, Iran in the lead for the first time. And thats how the first period will end.

2nd period - Low single on the right leg by Gocen. Bazrighaleh tries to grab the ankle, but Gocen changes directions and finishes to take the lead on criteria. The Iranian gets a reversal and tries a gut. Back up to their feet. IRI counters for two and a 9-6 lead, now working a lace for a 13-6 lead. Gocen keeps shooting, an Bazri keeps working go behind.

66kg Bronze: Gevorg Mkheyan (ARM) vs Iveriko Julakidze (GEO)
1st period - Mkheyan in on a shot, Julakdize trying to go over the top. Trapped in a switch like position and Julakdize comes out on top. Great movement by the Junior Euro bronze. Turns out, they gave two to ARM, Juladkidze gets the reversal. Solid singlet grab by Mkheyan on the hi c. Hip tip attempt but no points, and Julakidze runs through him for the lead. Mkheyan kicks out to start a great scramble. Not sure how it ended, but ARM is leading 4-4 on criteria.

2nd period - Another forever switch position, now each chasing ankles. Stalemated 46 seconds in. Reverse lock for Mkheyan fighting a shot, and stalemated once again. Limp arm finish by Julakidze, who tries a crotch lock. 45 seconds to go and another stalemate. Mkheyan chasing him now with 20 seconds to go. Julakidze closes it out and gets the victory lap with the Georgian flag.

55kg GOLD: Daton Fix (USA) vs Ismail Gadzhiev (RUS)
1st period - Daton comes out in blue, Gadzhiev in red. Hard to tell whose beard is better though. Fix's future coach at Okie State Zack Esposito in his corner. Daton hits his signature roll and jump. Immediate go behind for Fix, gets a lot of time on top but can't get his trap arm. Gazhie works Daton over to the edge and gets a stepout, 2-1 now. Lefty single fought off by Daton, halfway through the first. Boot scoot for two and after not opening yet again in par terre, the ref offers caution and two. White paddled but Daton leads 4-1. The Russian refuses to let go of the wrist after a trap arm gives Fix a 6-1 lead. Period ends with the same score.

2nd period - Daton level changing early and a quick stoppage. Gadzhiev again trying to work Fix to the edge, but he disappears under him and Daton gets two. Again no trap arm as the Russian continues to hold Daton's hand. Single leg on the edge and Daton leads 10-1! DATON FIX IS A WORLD CHAMP! Hopefully the first of four today. America is one win away from a team title.

55kg Bronze: Ramzan Awtaew (GER) vs Arsen Harutyunyan (ARM)
1st period - The Armenian starting us off with a takedown but can't quite get a turn with his lace. Harutyunyan extends his lead to 4-0 with 40 seconds left in the first period.

2nd period - Back to action in the second. Harutyunyan still up 4-0, he is the same guy who defeated Roman Bravo-Young at last year's Cadet world championships. Stalemate from short offense. ARM is controlling the match on his feet and looks anxious to finish off the match with his lace. Stepout and we are in the last 45 seconds here. Harutyunyan gets to a quadpod and finishes for a 9-0 lead, should seal the deal.

55kg Bronze: Nader Amir Nasrisamakoush (IRI) vs Afgan Khashalov (AZE)
1st period - This is the half of the bracket beaten by Daton Fix, Khashalov is the defending world champ at this weight. First passive goes against Iran. We've got a challenge already. They went out of bounds in a seatbelt whizzer position, two for Iran is the call on the mat. Call stands, 3-0 now Nasiri. Nasiri on the clock in the final minute of the period. Period ends 3-1 after the shot clock point.

2nd peiod - Go behind for Khashalov, taking the lead on criteria. Back to their feet now. Big lift for Nasiri on a head outside single, finishes to the mat and a BIG gut wrench to make it 7-3. Reversal for Khashalov. Good counter by Khashalov to pull within one, under a minute to go. Nasiri changes his shot, head behind the knee, killing clock. Final 10 seconds we have a crotch lock and Khashalov takes the lead! Goofy scramble and I think AZE takes this one.

Junior WOMEN"S Freestyle Results

Asia Ray wins Junior World bronze to kick off women's freestyle competition.
By Taylor Miller, USA Wrestling | Aug. 03, 2017, 1:21 p.m. (ET)

TAMPERE, Finland – With only three years of wrestling experience, U.S. Junior women’s freestyler Asia Ray bullied her way through the 44 kg/88 lbs. bracket of the 2017 Junior World Championships to claim a World bronze medal on Thursday.

“I was scared when I first came in, but now I feel like I really did deserve to be here. I’m excited. I’m ready for next year. I want to win next year,” Ray said.

Ray (Arlington, Texas/Arlington Storm WC) was the first match of the evening session, taking on 2017 Junior Pan-American champion Alexia Seal of Canada. The Texan controlled the match from the beginning, scoring the only points in the first period with a go-behind takedown to lead 2-0 at the break. In the second period, Ray scored on a shot attempt from Seal, before recording a takedown with an arm drag to extend her lead to 6-0.

Moments later, Seal ran through a double leg for a takedown to get on the board, but it was not enough. Ray went on to put an exclamation point on her first Junior World Championships, sneaking in a four-pointer to close out the match with a 10-2 win.

“It gives me a lot of confidence now,” Junior World bronze medalist Ray said. “I’m about to go to college, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be at the same level as the college girls. Competing in this tournament ad placing shows me that I’ll be able to keep up.”

Cameron Guerin (Yakima, Wash./Team Takedown) wrapped up her first Junior World Championships with a fifth-place finish at 51 kg/112 lbs. Advancing to the bronze-medal bout, Guerin, the 2017 Junior Pan Am champion, faced Bolor Bat Orshikh of Mongolia. The bout started off in a scramble that saw Orshikh pick up four points. Guerin’s corner challenge the call, which it won, bringing the score to 4-2 in favor of the Mongolian.

Orshikh ran away with the match with an arm drag for four points on the edge of the mat. She finished it off with fireman’s carry an additional exposure for a 12-2 tech fall win.

“Overall, I had a great time. It was a great experience,” Guerin said. “In my two losses, I have a growing mindset, so I’m just learning from it.” On the day, Guerin went 2-2, notching wins over Yeonseo Choi of Korea and Jaydn Davis of Canada earlier in the day.

2016 Cadet World bronze medalist Gracie Figueroa and Alex Glaude also competed for USA today, both finishing 1-1 in the morning session.

Figueroa will represent the U.S. at the Cadet World Championships in September.

The Junior World Championships continue tomorrow with the final day of women’s freestyle competition as McKayla Campbell, Ronna Heaton, Maya Nelson and Rachel Watters represent Team USA.

The first session, which includes preliminary rounds through semifinals and repechage, will begin at 10 a.m. local time. The medal matches will take place at 6 p.m. local time.

Tampere, Finland is seven hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Time, meaning those wishing to watch live can tune in at 3 a.m. (ET). A live stream of the event, as well as brackets, can be found at Trackwrestling.com.

DAY 4 - Another Gold for the USA

Maya Nelson Wins Jr. World Gold

In a bit of a rough day for the Team USA junior women, returning bronze medalist Maya Nelson provided the lone bright spot at the Junior World Championships on Friday in Tampere, Finland.

Nelson reached the finals with dominant performances in her first two matches. She won by 12-2 technical fall to start the day before getting a pin in her second match to reach the semifinals against Russia's Mariia Kuznetsova, who Nelson defeated last year for bronze.

And it was once again all Nelson as she pulled off the 4-0 victory to make the 63kg finals. In the waning seconds of the bout, Nelson somehow fought off a takedown and kept from getting pushed out to score a takedown of her own to seal the victory and advance to the finals. Nelson will now face Bulgaria's Yaneva in the gold medal match on Friday.

Two-time cadet world finalist Ronna Heaton and Rachel Watters each won their first bouts but fell in their second.

Heaton looked sharp early on with a 10-0 technical fall before getting overpowered in the second round by 2015 cadet world champion Viktoriya Vaulina of Russia, who was then defeated in the semifinals and which ultimately eliminated Heaton from the tournament.

Watters used some last-second heroics to get her first win to start the day but couldn't keep the trend going in her second match and was later eliminated.

McKayla Campbell was defeated in her first match and knocked out of the tournament in the next round after Ankush of India, who defeated Campbell, was defeated herself.

Maya Nelson is the only Team USA wrestler to reach the medal match on the final day of freestyle wrestling at the Junior World Championships in Tampere, Finland, on Friday. Follow along as Nelson looks to claim the title at 63kg against Bulgaria's Yuliana Yaneva.

63kg: Maya Nelson (USA) vs. Yuliana Yaneva (BUL)

1st period: Nelson earns a takedown off a single to take a 2-0 lead. A lot of tough hand fighting after Nelson scored the only points of the period.

Break: 2-0, Nelson.

2nd period: With a little over a minute left, Yenava takes a shot and Nelson fends it off. Nelson is back on the attack and scores 4 as they go out of bounds to take the 6-0 lead. Nelson is going to be the winner with a 6-0 victory.

Final: Maya Nelson 6-0!

The best results ever for the USA Junior wrestlers in the World Championships this past week in Finland !!

Greco-Roman wraps up 2017 Junior World Championships for USA

By Taylor Miller, USA Wrestling | Aug. 06, 2017, 8:15 a.m. (ET)

TAMPERE, Finland – The U.S. Greco-Roman Junior World Team wrapped up its 2017 Junior World Championships on Sunday afternoon in Tampere, Finland.

Overall the U.S. Greco team had one of its best performances in recent memory, sending two wrestlers to the finals for the first time since 1993 and capturing its first Junior World title since 1999.

“I think a day like yesterday shows us that it’s possible and that we can do,” Greco Junior World Team coach Gary Mayabb said. “I think it acts as an igniter for where we want to be as a program and as a nation. I’m confident that we’ll redouble our efforts and we’ll come back with that.”

Team USA as a whole earned a Junior World champion in all three styles for the first time in history, with men’s freestylers Daton Fix, Mark Hall and Gable Steveson, women’s wrestler Maya Nelson and Greco’s Kamal Bey all winning gold. The Red, White and Blue also picked up four silver medals and two bronze throughout the week.

In day two of Greco action, the U.S. was unable to qualify for a medal.

Returning Junior World Team member Randon Miranda (Palmdale, Calif./New York AC) swallowed a tough loss in the first round at 55 kg/121 lbs., losing to 2015 Cadet World champion Turabek Tirkashev of Uzbekistan.

Miranda trailed 6-0 at the break, with the Uzbek scoring a takedown and later an arm throw. The American drew a point for passivity and eventually picked up a four-pointer on the edge late in the match, but Miranda’s comeback bid came up short, 6-5.

Tirkashev eventually lost in the semifinals to 2016 Cadet World silver medalist Kerem Kamal of Turkey.

At 66 kg/145 lbs., Dominick Demas (Columbus, Ohio/Columbus WC) fell in the opening round to 2016 Junior Pan Am champion Joilson de Brito Ramos Junior of Brazil, 10-2.

Wyatt Koelling (Columbia, Mo./Missouri Wrestling Foundation) went 0-1 at 84 kg/185 lbs. in the 2017 Junior World Championships, falling to 2017 Nordic champion Aleksandr Stjepnetic of Sweden, 3-1.

16-year-old Cohlton Schultz (Parker, Colo./New York AC) was knocked out of the tournament, losing a tight 4-3 match to 2016 Nordic champion Artur Vititin of Estonia at 120 kg/264 lbs.

“I thought I wrestled an OK match. I tried to catch him on an arm throw and he got his feet back under him. That’s all he really did. I just really want to get that back. This is just extra fuel for Athens,” Schultz said.

Schultz will return to the World stage for the 2017 Cadet World Championships in Athens, Greece, Sept. 4-10.

The medal matches are set for 6 p.m. local time (11 a.m. ET) Tuesday evening. Live stream and brackets can be found on trackwrestling.com. Viewers must pay to watch the live stream.

Pataridze Bags Double-Triple, Iran Takes GR Team Title to Close Jr Wrestling World C'ships

By William May
August 6, 2017 - 20:30

TAMPERE, Finland (August 6) – Defending champion Zviadi PATARIDZE (GEO) eased to a 6-2 victory over challenger Roman KIM (KGZ) on Sunday and claimed his third title at the Junior Wrestling World Championships.

Pataridze rolled up three technical falls at 120kg in the morning session at Tampere Exhibition and Sport Center and appeared headed to a fourth in the championship final. The champ, however, was warned against “push-out” points as he dialed back his offense for the points victory.

Pataridze’s three world titles equals the three crowns he has won at the European junior championships, bringing his total in major age-group competitions to nine – with a one European cadet crown along with two cadet world titles.

Meanwhile, Iran secured the team title with a gold and silver medal on Sunday for a total of 58 points and a five-point win over second-place Russia. Turkey climbed into third place, overtaking first day leader U.S. with gold and bronze medals and 38 points.

Iran’s gold medal came from Asian junior champion Amin KAVIYANINEJAD (IRI) who backed Malkhas AMOYAN (ARM) out of the wrestling area with a minute remaining in the 66kg final for two points, a caution and a 3-3 victory.

Last year’s junior world bronze medalist Arman ABDEVALI (IRI) upgraded to silver at 84kg for Iran but could not overcome junior European champ Aleksandr KOMAROV (RUS) in the gold medal match.

Komarov pulled himself behind Abdevali for two points early in the bout and quickly added two more with a gut wrench. Under pressure from Abdevali in the second period, Komarov escaped from the edge of the mat, dropping his opponent to his back for four points and the technical fall.

In the first gold medal final of the evening at 55kg, European champ Kerim KAMAL (TUR) grabbed a 4-1 lead over Zholaman SHARSHENBEKOV (KGZ) in the first period with a pair of throws. He broke the bout open in the second with a four-point throw and 12-3 technical fall.

In the bronze medal bouts at 55kg, 2015 cadet world champ Turabek TIRKASHEV (UZB) locked up a front headlock and cranked Serghei JEPAN (MDA) over for a pair of four-point scores and the technical fall.

European silver medalist Emin SEFERSHAEV (RUS) received the final passivity point for a 2-2 win over Tigran MINASYAN (ARM) -- changed to 3-2 after a lost challenge from the Armenian corner.

At 66 kg, Miakhdi IAKHIAEV (RUS) scored with a step-out in the first period and a bodylock takedown for a 3-1 win over Mikko PELTOKANGAS (FIN), while Namaz RUSTAMOV (AZE) held on for a 2-2 win over former European junior champion Murat FIRAT (TUR)

At 84kg, Salih AYDIN (TUR) scored a late takedown for a 3-2 lead, adding a gut wrench and then, coming out of a final scramble for a 7-4 win over 2015 cadet world bronze medalist Nicu OJOG (ROU).

Mikita KLIMOVICH (BLR) weathered a storm of headlocks that put hi, down 4-0 to local favorite Toni METSOMAEKI (FIN) after three minutes. The European silver medalist took control midway through the second with takedown a series of gut wrenches for a 12-9 victory.

And, prior to Pataridze’s final at 120kg, Konsta MAEENPAEAE (FIN) caught Patryk KAMINSKI (POL) in a headlock for two points, arched him over for a quick 6-0 lead. With the vocal support of local fans, Maeenpaeae scored back exposure on Kaminski with a front headlock for the technical fall – as the crowd went wild

In the bronze medal bout of the championships, Amin MIRZAZADEH (IRI), a fifth-place finisher at last year’s junior world meet, followed up on a spin-behind takedown with a series of gut wrenches for an 8-0 technical fall over European silver medalist Georgi GADZHINOV (RUS).
