Alli Ragan claimed her seconds straight World silver medal as Women's Freestyle Wrestling wrapped up in Paris. Ragan stormed to the finals including a thrilling pin via righty headlock in the semi-finals. It's a great way for the 25-year old to start off the quad as she looks to continue to build towards 2020 including a move to Iowa City.

Victoria Anthony had 3 dominant wins on the day that got her to the bronze medal match. Unfortunately, she was out-matched in her two losses leaving her off the podium. 

Haley Augello and Tamyra Mensah also opened up with wins (Haley with two of them), but their losses unfortunately didn't allow them to be pulled back into repechage.  

The USA Women will leave Paris with 3 medals and 2nd in the team standings. It's an incredible showing considering the youth, promise, and not having Adeline Gray. There is a lot to be positive about as they head towards Tokyo in 2020. 

Now the Men's Freestyle take the mats the last couple days as they look to finish off the week with an extensive medal haul.
