FILA World Wrestling Championships Day 4 Videos/Results

Quinn Rooney

Another day is in the books in Budapest at the 2013 FILA World Championships of Wrestling. Bloody Elbow brings you day 3 results, and championship match video.

The American freestyle wrestling women today performed admirably but ultimately fell short of my hopes.

I truly believe that the USA's Helen Maroulis is the future of women's wrestling and will become the sport's first crossover star in the United States. Today proves that she still has some room to grow. She lost in a hotly contested match in the semis to Sofia Mattson, and then found herself thrown and pinned in the repechage; she did not reach a medal match

At 59kg, Alli Ragan started off strong but lost a close match in the quarters and found herself eliminated when her quarter opponent lost in the semis.

Elena Pirozkhova won yet another world medal as she earned a bronze. She lost in the semifinals to Battsetseg Sornzobold of Mongolia by pin after trying to come back from an early deficit.

55 kg/121 lbs.
Gold – Saori Yoshida (Japan)
Silver – Sofia Mattson (Sweden)
Bronze – Emese Barka (Hungary)
Bronze – Valeria Koblova (Russia)

Saori Yoshida won her 11th world title today to accompany her three Olympic gold medals. She is the greatest female wrestler ever. Watch her below.

59 kg/130 lbs.
Gold – Marianna Sastin (Hungary)
Silver – Taybe Yusein (Bulgaria)
Bronze – Muhktuya Tungalag (Mongolia)
Bronze – Yuliya Ratkevich (Azerbaijan)

Host country Hungary gets gold, and the crowd went wild, watch the match below.

63 kg/138.75 lbs.
Gold – Kaori Icho (Japan)
Silver – Battsetseg Sornzobold (Mongolia)
Bronze – Elena Pirozhkova (USA)
Bronze – Yekaterina Larionova (Kazakhstan)

Kaori Icho also owns three Olympic golds as well, and this was her 8th world title. I find her more impressive than Yoshida, watch her sweet ankle pick from a front headlock below.

Tomorrow we will see the final two women's weights along with Greco-Roman's first weight, 55kg.
