2021-2022 International Rankings - Men's Freestyle
Iran’s Rahman Amouzad had an outstanding world championship. Amouzad won gold highlighted by wins over, Yianni Diakomihalis, Ismail Musukaev, and Haji Aliyev. Musukaev came back to take bronze with a 4-2 win over Aliyev.
Though Yianni made the world finals, he didn’t face anyone ranked in the top 12. However, navigating the field he did and reaching the world finals should be rewarded. Yianni took out Bajrang Punia, Vazgen Tevanyan, Vladimir Dubov, and Sebastian Rivera to reach the finals. Because of that, Yianni moves into the #8 spot right behind former world champion and Olympic bronze medalist Gadzhimurad Rashidov.
It's also worth noting defending Olympic champ Takuto Otoguro hasn't wrestled since the Olympics and has been removed from the rankings because of that. Should Otoguro return to competition, he likely slot back in at #1.
