    Joel Adams Makes the Greco Finals on Day One at the Cadet World Championships

    65 kg Cadet Greco-Roman world finalist Joel Adams; WrestlersAreWarriors.com)

    Monday marked the first day of competition at the 2022 Cadet World Championships. Action started with Greco-Roman and half of the weights got underway from Rome, Italy.

    The American already has a medal locked up with Nebraska's Joel Adams in the 65 kg finals. Adams went 4-0 on the day and did not surrender a point in any of his bouts. He outscored the competition 30-0. Adams will face Iran's Ahoura Bouveiri Piani in tomorrow's gold medal match. Bouveiri Piani has not been as dominant as the American. He prevailed and clinched a spot in the finals with a 1-1 win on criteria. Bouveiri Piani was seventh at the Asian Championships, earlier this year.

    Of the four remaining Greco wrestlers that took the mat on Monday, only Koy Hopke at 110 kg was able to log a win. Hopke went 1-1 on the day, but was eliminated when Ukraine's Dmytro Stryzhekozin (Ukraine) fell in the semifinals. Like Hopke, Christian Castillo (48 kg), Nick Trester (55 kg), and Cole Han Lindemyer (80 kg) have been knocked out of medal contention.
