Recommended Posts

Up two weight classes.

5 straight tech-falls.  Not scored on.  53-0 total score   

Slick series of moves to win the title.  (Highlights on link below)



Becka Leathers takes a Bronze.  Solid start for the women's team.

Maroulis dominated her opponents with suffocating offense and airtight defense on her feet, as well as a nasty series of back exposures on the mat. Well-rounded dominance by the Olympic champ, somewhat breaking up the Japanese gold party, at least temporarily. That's a bad, bad woman

That's world gold at 55kg, olympic gold at 53kg (cutting down for a vision quest victory over the Japanese women's GOAT), and world gold at 58kg in 3 straight years.  Amazing to watch her. So slick. Kayla Miracle can actually look back at this April world team qualifying result with pride--making it to 5:45 AND scoring 2 points. No one else in the world could pull off either of those two feats.

H. Maroulis

Alli Ragan (60kg) goes for gold and Victoria Anthony (48kg) goes for bronze starting at 1pm Indiana time today for free on the UWW site.  

Day 1 prelims for men's freestyle will run from roughly 4am until 10am tomorrow morning. We'll have Thomas Gilman, multiple time AA from Iowa, at 57kg (125.5), defending world champ Logan Stieber at 61kg (134), defending Olympic bronze J'Den Cox at 86kg (189), and 2-time NCAA champ Nick Gwiazdowski at 125kg (275).

I was thinking the same thing about Kayla. Helen's dominance in France puts Miracle's runner-up performance in an even better light. It's hard to envision someone being more dominant against the rest of the world than maroulis yesterday.

Also impressive is Japan's okono, at 55 kg. 18 yrs old, cadet world champ in 2016, senior world champ in 2017.

Ragan will have to really bring it to beat Kawai. Would love to see it
