    2023 World Championships: Women's Freestyle Preview (Part One 50-59kg)

    We’re less than a week away from the 2023 Senior World Championships, so it’s time to unveil 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. 

    The tournament will start off hot with the men’s freestyle competition and then move into women’s freestyle. In 2022, our women’s team came away with medals in seven of ten weights, including three gold medals. The transition from 2022 to 2023 saw the American squad lose a world champion (Tamyra Mensah-Stock) but gain another (the return of Adeline Gray). While everyone on the women’s side is always chasing Japan, this team has the potential to push the Japanese and defeat anyone else in the world. 

    With that out of the way, here are the entries at each of the first five weights, along with some of their notable achievements, pre-seeds, information on the American entry, and 2022 medalists.


    Kseniya STANKEVICH (AIN - BLR) - 2x European Bronze Medalist

    Mariya STADNIK (AZE) - 4x Olympic Medalist (2nd x2, 3rd x2), 2x World Champion, 6x World Medalist

    Kamila BARBOSA (BRA) - 2021 World 18th Place

    Madison PARKS (CAN) - 2022 Pan-American Silver Medalist, 2021 World 7th Place

    Ziqi FENG (CHN) - 2023 Asian Bronze Medalist, 2019 U23 World Silver Medalist
