Mahamedkhabib Kadzimahamedau earned a World/Olympic medal for the first time. He was also a bronze medalist in 2020 at the Individual World Cup.

Kadzimahamedau was the first Olympic finalist in men's freestyle in Belarus since Aleksey Medvedev in 1996.

Kadzimahamedau defeated a pair of two-time world champions (Kyle Dake and Frank Chamizo) to make the Olympic finals.

Kyle Dake earned his third World/Olympic medal.

For Dake to get his bronze medal, he also defeated two-time world champion Chamizo.

Dake had a 48-match winning streak that dated back to 2018 snapped by Kazimahamedau.

Bekzod Abdurakhmonov earned his third World/Olympic medal.

Abdurakhmonov started the tournament facing his fellow Nittany Lion Wrestling Club teammate Franklin Gomez.

Both of the semifinal losers also fell in the bronze medal matches.

Cuba's representative, Jeandry Garzon Caballero, last competed at the Olympic Games in 2008. The American entry at that weight class was Doug Schwab.

Iran had a Olympic medalist in each of the last two Olympic Games at this weight class, but failed to do so this time.
