    Japan has had an Olympic gold medalist at the lightest women's weights in each of the last three Games.

    Stadnik was the only seeded wrestler that made it to the Olympic podium.

    Hildebrandt is now a two-time World/Olympic medalist.

    Hildebrandt earned wins over two past world medalists (Evin Demirhan and Livach).

    With her bronze medal, Hildebrandt became the third American woman to earn a medal at the initial weight class (Patricia Miranda - 2004 and Clarissa Chun - 2012).

    Both semifinal losers rebounded to earn bronze medals.

    The opening round saw three past world medalists go down (Demirhan, Islamova, Vuc).
