Fausz, Hemida claim silver medals at U23 World Championships

BUCHAREST, Romania -- The USA wrapped up the 2018 U23 World Championships on Sunday night in Bucharest, Romania, claiming two more men's freestyle silver medals from Sean Fausz and Youssif Hemida.

In the 61 kg gold-medal match, U23 World Team alternate Fausz took on 2018 U23 European champion Magomedrasul Idrisov of Russia.

Idrisov, also the 2018 Russia Nationals champion, led 3-0 at the break. In the second period, the Russian picked up three takedowns and a gut wrench to cap off an 11-1 win. Fausz's point came from a step out in the middle of the second period.

"I'm very excited with what I've accomplished," Fausz said. "It's a big deal to come here and walk away with a medal. I couldn't have done this without the Wolfpack Wrestling, Titan Mercury Wrestling Club and USA Wrestling. What they do behind the scenes and in front is a big, big help."
