A group of 13 Americans are heading to the Zagreb Open to try earn themselves seeding points for this year's world championships. They're led by Junior world medalists Kamal Bey and Tracy Hancock, who are but just a couple of the world medalists in this star studded field.

Now that UWW has released the rosters, it's time to comb through and find all the world medalists from age group on up. Remember, the entry lists are preliminary but most if not all of those registered will be competing at the Grand Prix.

In total, there are 35 world medalists between the Senior, Junior, Cadet, and U23 age levels.
