YONEMITSU DEFEATS WORLD CHAMP, JAPAN DROPS 3 AT FS WORLD CUP


BAKU (May 12) – Tatsuhiro Yonemitsu won a rematch of last year’s world championships final, but Japan dropped its first three dual meets at the World Cup of men’s freestyle wrestling.

 

Yonemitsu, the world silver medalist at 66kg in Istanbul, toppled world champ Mehdi Taghavi Kermani (IRI), 2-1 (1-0, 0-2, 1-0) in a third-round dual, but Japan fell 5-2 (19-8) to Iran.

 

Japan was also saddled with losses by the United States, 5-2, and Georgia, 4-3, in the five-team preliminary round competition.  Japan will face Turkey on Sunday after the fifth-round duals were postponed due to the length of the first four rounds.

 

At the end of the first day of competition, Iran is undefeated with four wins in Group B while host Azerbaijan is atop Group A unbeaten with three wins.  Winless Japan and Turkey will face off in Round 5 to stay out of the Group B cellar.

 

Japanese heavyweight Nobuyoshi Arakida did not make the trip to Baku after injuring his knee at the Olympic qualification tourney in China in late April.
