A day after Emily Shilson became the first American wrestler to win a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games, Robert Howard matched her feat. Shilson is a senior at Centennial high school in Minnesota, while Howard is in his junior year at Bergen Catholic in New Jersey.

Shilson won five matches on Saturday in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her opponents included 2017 Cadet world bronze Simran of India and Shahana Nazarova of Azerbaijan, the opponent Shilson teched back in July to win the Cadet world finals.

On Sunday, Howard teched Cadet world silver medalist Hayato Fujita of Japan, and beat 2018 Cadet Euro champ Vladyslav Ostapenko of Ukraine 10-5. At the 2017 world championships, Ostapenko had teched Howard 11-0.

Also competing at these Youth Olympics were Tiare Ikei of Hawaii and Carson Manville of Minnesota. Manville fell in the bronze medal match at 65kg and Ikei finished sixth at 49kg.

The United States had previously made four finals at the YOG. Jordan Rogers was the first, finishing second at 76kg in 2010 for the men's freestyle team. Both Daton Fix (54kg) and Cade Olivas (46kg) finished with silvers for men's freestyle in 2014. Mason Manville added a Greco-Roman silver at 69kg that same year, meaning Shilson won the first medal in women's freestyle for the USA.
