No Yoshida, No Icho; No Problem. The Beat Goes On for Japanese at Paris World C'ships
By William May

August 16, 2017

PARIS, August 16 – For the first time since 2002, Japan heads into the wrestling world championships without Saori YOSHIDA or Kaori ICHO in the women’s line-up.

Other coaches might fret over suddenly not having either of these wrestling superstars and their gold production – 23 world titles, seven Olympic Games gold medals -- to go to after 15 years. But, for Kazuhito SAKAE and his coaching staff, the beat goes on.

They have assembled a squad for the August 21-26 Senior World Wrestling Championships at AccorHotels Arena that includes four favorites in the women’s events. The average age of the quartet is 20.5 years.

The quartet features Rio 2016 gold medalists Risako KAWAI (60kg) and Sara DOSHO (69kg) – each seeking their first world titles – along with 2016 junior and senior world champion Mayu MUKAIDA (53kg) and three-time cadet world champion Yui SUSAKI (48kg).

Further, due to a quirky coincidence in scheduling, all four favorites from Japan will be on the mats on Thursday, the second day of women’s wrestling at the world championships.

Wednesday, the first day of women’s events, will be headlined by Helen MAROULIS, who grabbed the Rio 2016 gold medal with a win over Yoshida at 53kg. In Paris, she will be entered at 58kg and faces a potential showdown with Rio silver medalist Valerie KOBLOVA-ZHOLOBOVA (RUS).

With Mukaida’s move to 53kg and Maroulis’s jump to 58kg, 2015 world bronze medalist Odunayo ADKUOROYE (NGR) takes over the favorite’s role at 55kg. The field, crowded and balanced, features Rio bronze medalist Natalya SINISHIN (AZE) and European champion Bilyana DUDOVA (BUL).

At 63kg, PUREVDORJ Orkhon (MGL) dons the favorite’s mantle with wins in Poland and Spain, while two-time European champion Yasemin ADAR (TUR) becomes the favorite at 75kg. Adar gives Turkey the favorite wrestler in the heaviest category of each discipline – with Riza KAYAALP (130kg) in Greco-Roman and Taha AKGUL (125kg) in freestyle.

On the second day of women’s wrestling, Dosho might face the stiffest challenge of the Japanese quartet at 69kg with the likes of 2014 world champion Aline FOCKEN (GER) and European champion Anastasija BRATCHIKOVA (RUS)

Dosho could also face local favorite and one of France’s brightest medal hopes, European bronze medalist Koumba LARROQUE (FRA). Larroque, who won the 2016 junior world title in Macon (FRA), kicked off 2017 with a triumph in Paris. She also won the Klippan Open with a win over Rio bronze medalist Jenny FRANSSON (SWE) in the final.

Meanwhile, three-time Olympic Games medalist Mariya STADNIK (AZE) is apparently sitting out the world championships at 48kg after winning her seventh European championship title in May.

The number of entries for each weight category is based on the number of national governing bodies that have submitted preliminary entries for the world championships. The number can change since final entries can be accepted until noon on the day of the category’s weigh-in.

I cannot recall any more dominating performance by a USA wrestler EVER in the Olympics or World Championships than what Helen Maroulis did today - 53-0 against the best in the world, while wrestling up two weight classes from her Olympic weight last year.
All from a shy little Maryland girl.
Quite a story!!

Ragan gets silver, Anthony places fifth and Team USA tied for second among women at World Championships

By Gary Abbott, USA Wrestling | Aug. 24, 2017, 4:38 p.m. (ET)

PARIS, France – Alli Ragan (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) won a silver medal at 60 kg/132 lbs. for the second straight year and the United States placed in a tie for second in the team race on the final day of women’s freestyle at the World Championships in Thursday.

Ragan was beaten in the finals by 2016 Olympic gold medalist Risako Kawai of Japan in the gold-medal finals, 13-0. Kawai won her Olympic title at 63 kg/138.75 lbs., but has dropped down in weight this season. Kawai led 4-0 at the break with two takedowns, and was able to get three more second-period takedowns, including a four-pointer to end the match.

Ragan was competing in her fifth World Championships, and won her other silver medal in December 2016 in Budapest, Hungary.

Ragan got on a strong run to win three bouts to reach the finals in the morning session. She opened with a 10-0 technical fall against Gabriella Sleisz of Hungary, then beat Luisa Niemesch of Germany 4-0 in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, trailing 3-2, she hit a headlock and pinned 2014 World bronze medalist Anastasija Grigorjeva of Latvia in 4:43.

At 48 kg/105.5 lbs., Victoria Anthony (Tempe, Ariz./Sunkist Kids) was defeated in the bronze-medal match by 2017 Asian silver medalist Son-hyang Kim of North Korea, by an 11-1 technical fall. Kim, also a 2014 Youth Olympic Games champion, led 3-0 at the break after a takedown and a point on a stepout. In the second period, Kim was able to twice score a takedown followed by a turn for four points each, to reach a 10 point lead.

Anthony has now placed fifth at the Senior World Championships twice, also taking fifth at the 2013 World Championships competing up at 51 kg/112.25 lbs.

In the morning session, Anthony opened with a 28-second 10-0 technical fall over Korea’s Miran Cheon, then pinned Vinesh of India in 5:09. In the quarterfinals, Anthony dropped an 11-0 technical fall to three-time Cadet World champion Yui Susaki. When Susaki reached the finals, Anthony had a repechage match, pinning Julie Sabatie of France in 4:23.

“We started out strong today but the wheels came off a little bit. They competed hard. We are not quite there yet. We have some things to work on and it showed. We still have a lot of things to work on,” said National Women’s Coach Terry Steiner.

Japan won the team title with 60 points, with the United States and Belarus tied in second with 38 points. The USA and Belarus had the same exact placements, which resulted in the second place award being shared by the nations.

The last time the United States placed second as a team was in 2003, when the USA tied Japan at the World Championships in Madison Square Garden in New York City, but Japan won the tiebreaker with the most individual champions.

“It is always important to get a team trophy. It is important to maintain where we have been and to move forward. We have a good group of athletes. We need a little more grit. We have to find that. We have to train that. We have work to do, but we are not starting from scratch. This is a good group of athletes right here. We just have to get better at what we do,” said Steiner.

All four of the U.S. wrestlers competing on Thursday placed in the top 10 and scored valuable team points for the United States.

2016 Olympian Haley Augello (Lockport, Ill./New York AC) placed eighth at 53 kg/116.5 lbs. with a 2-1 record. Augello opened with an 11-0 technical fall over Thi Hang Vu of Vietmam, then beat Lannaun Luo of China, 3-0. In the quarterfinals, she lost to Roksana Zasina of Poland, 6-2.

2016 Olympic Trials champion Tamyra Mensah (Katy, Texas/Titan Mercury WC) at 69 kg/152 lbs. finished in eighth place, going 1-1. In her first match, Mensah beat 2015 Junior World bronze medalist Alla Belinska of Ukraine in a 12-2 technical fall. She lost a tight 5-2 decision to 016 Junior World silver medalist Yue Han of China in the quarterfinals. Hue was beaten in the closing seconds in the semifinals, which eliminated Mensah from the repechage rounds.

The United States won three medals in women’s wrestling in Paris, as Helen Maroulis (New York, N.Y./Sunkist Kids) won a gold at 58 kg/128 lbs. and Becka Leathers (Choctaw, Okla./Titan Mercury WC) got a bronze at 55 kg/121 lbs. on Wednesday.

In the other three finals, Japan won two more gold medals while Belarus won its first title of the event.

2016 Olympic champion Sara Dosho of Japan added her first World gold medal with a 3-0 victory in the finals over 2014 World championAline Focken of Germany. It was a rematch of the 2014 World finals, won by Focken, 5-4. Dosho now has four World medals, with a silver in 2014 and bronzes in 2013 and 2015. It was Focken’s third Senior World medal.

At 48 kg/105.5 lbs., three-time Cadet World champion Yui Susaki of Japan won her first Senior World title at the age of 18, defeating Emilia Vuc of Romania, 14-4 by technical fall. Vuc, a 2016 European silver medalist, actually was ahead 4-2 at the start of the match, but Susaki ran off 12 straight points for the win.

2012 World champion Vanesa Kaladzinskaya of Belarus took 2016 World champion Mayu Mukaida of Japan to her back for four points to claim a stunning 8-6 win at 53 kg/116.5 lbs. Mukaida led at the break, 6-1, but Kaladzinskaya scored three points to close it to 6-4, then hit the match winner before time ran out.

UWW named its 2016 Women’s Best Woman Wrestlers, awarded to Yang Sun of China, who received a $10,000 prize.

The men’s freestyle competition begins on Friday and concludes on Saturday. All of the action can be seen live on Trackwrestling by U.S. fans.
