    2023 World Championships: Greco-Roman Preview (Part One 55 - 72kg)

    We’re less than 24 hours away from the 2023 Senior World Championships, so it’s time to wrap up our previews for the event. We’ll go in order of the competition and hit half of the weights one day and the other half the following day. Our men’s and women’s freestyle previews have already been released, so it’s time to finish with Greco-Roman. 

    The 2023 Greco-Roman team is a good mix of grizzled veterans and new promising faces. This year’s team does not feature any past Senior world medalists, but what better time than now with Olympic qualification also on the line. 

    Below are the entries at each of the last five weights, along with some of their notable achievements, pre-seeds, information on the American entry, and 2022 medalists.


    Vitalii KABALOEV (AIN - RUS) - 2019 World 7th Place, 2019 European Champion

    Mohamed DRIDI (ALG) - 2023 African Champion

    Rudik MKRTCHYAN (ARM) - 2x European Bronze Medalist

    Eldaniz AZIZLI (AZE) - 2x World Champion, 4x World Medalist (1x2, 3x2), 2x European Champion
