Team USA is off to a great start in the World Cup in Freestyle wrestling going 3-0 thus far against world powers Georgia, Russia (although it is said they are only wrestling their 3rd string team), and now Azerbaijan. Team Iran has won 29 of 30 individual matches in the tournament and will make things very tough for our American grapplers in the Gold medal match later today.
Fellow former Buckeye Logan Stieber is 3-0 so far with all three wins coming by decision. Kyle Snyder was dominant in his first two bouts winning by tech fall 11-0, and winning his second match 11-2. In his third match he lost a close decision 5-4 to Aslanbek Alborov of Azerbaijan.
