KRASNOYARSK, Russia -- Two Americans -- Victoria Anthony and Thomas Gilman -- won bronze in their respective weight classes at the Ivan Yariguin Grand Prix in Russia on Friday.

Anthony began the medal run for the USA, winning bronze at 50 kilograms.

A two-time Junior World champion and two-time U.S. Senior World Teamer, Anthony took on multiple-time international medalist Elena Vostrikova of Russia.

Anthony scored early with her famous inside trip for four points to carry a 4-0 lead into the break. Vostrikova scored late in the bout, drawing passivity from Anthony. The American finished off the match with a takedown in the last few seconds for a 6-1 win and a bronze medal.

At 57 kilograms, 2017 World silver medalist Gilman won an exciting back-and-forth match against two-time World bronze medalist Bekhbayar Erdenebat from Mongolia.
