The United States produced four medals, including one first place, taking the lead in the team race after two days of wrestling.

David Taylor won his first world gold medal after beating five of the world's best wrestlers, including a first-round win against Yazdanicharati and a 12-2 demolition of Turkey's top-seeded Fatih Erdin in the gold medal bout.
Joe Colon surprised many after winning a bronze medal while filling for injured Nahshon Garrett, and Nick Gwiazdowski capped a 4-for-4 medal round with a bronze medal for the United States that put the Americans out front in their pursuit of a historic second straight World team title.
