Assad wins bronze, Figueroa and Kerkvliet finish with silver at 2018 Cadet Worlds

ZAGREB, Croatia – USA’s Cadet men’s freestyle team collected two silver and one bronze medals in the evening session of Tuesday action at the Cadet World Championships in Zagreb, Croatia.

Daniel Greg Kerkvliet and Richard Figueroa finished their 2018 Cadet World Championships with silver medals, and Abe Assad claimed a bronze medal.

2017 World champion Kerkvliet fell short in his quest for a second-consecutive Cadet World title, falling in the 110 kg final.

Kerkvliet’s opponent, 2018 Cadet Asian champion Amir Zare of Iran, got out to an early lead with a shot clock point and a step out. Kerkvliet was back in it with a strong takedown, but the Iranian’s power was too much. Zare scored two more step outs and a takedown to earn an eventual 7-4 win. Continue reading at www.teamusa.org
