Taylor, Dake, Cox Win, USA Finishes Second Behind Russia


The United States produced three gold medals and seven medals overall to finish second in the world championships, behind Russia.

Two-time NCAA champion 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.

Four-time NCAA champion Kyle Dake won his first world gold medal by besting the competition 37-0. Dake is the first wrestler to not surrender a point all tournament since 2012.

Three-time NCAA champion J'den Cox, a bronze medalist at the Rio Olympics and 2017 Worlds, won his first world title by besting Belarusian Ivan Yankouski 4-1 in the 92kg final.

World and Olympic champion Kyle Snyder lost his finals rematch with Russia's Abdulrashid Sadulaev by fall, finishing with a silver medal.

Congrats, guys!
