Wrestling in the 50 kg finals, Audrey Jimenez fell to 2017 U17 World champion Umi Ito of Japan, 10-0. The silver medal comes just weeks after she went 0-1 at the U17 World Championships in Rome. Just 16 years old, Jimenez impressed on her way to the finals with three dominant wins competing at a higher age group. She adds to her 2021 U17 World bronze medal.

Five Americans will begin competition in Greco-Roman on Thursday, including Jonathan Gurule (55 kg), Haiden Drury (63 kg), Payton Jacobson (77 kg), Kodiak Stephens (87 kg) and Aden Attao (130 kg).
