2022 World Championship Rankings - Men's Freestyle

Team - Iran

USA and Iran are the clear favorites to win the team title with Russia currently banned from the 2022 World Championships with Iran holding only a 14-point lead! If the rankings hold, USA will bring home 7 medals from the world championships - 3 golds, 3 silvers and 1 bronze. Iran is ranked to win 8 medals - 3 golds, 2 silvers, and 3 bronze.  

After Iran and USA, the race for third place is open for almost any country listed in the top 10. Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey are the safest picks of this bunch with strong medal contenders throughout their lineups. Of that group, Azerbaijan looks to have the most promising lineup with many young contenders who have made huge improvements over the past year.

Team points are calculated in congruence with UWW’s top 10 placement points for world championship team scoring: 25, 20, 15, 15, 10, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2.
