Men's Freestyle

The U.S. Men’s Freestyle World Team won its second World Team Championship in back-to-back years in Belgrade, Serbia. This marks the fifth team title in men’s freestyle history, as well as the first time the team has won back-to-back World Team Titles.

The USA men’s freestylers finished with seven medals, and qualified four weights for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. David Taylor (86 kg) added his fourth gold medal, while Vito Arujau (61 kg) and Zain Retherford (70 kg) claimed their first World gold medals. Kyle Dake captured silver at 74 kg, while Zahid Valencia (92 kg), Kyle Snyder (97 kg), and Mason Parris (125 kg) claimed bronze.

The United States must still qualify the 57 kg and 65 kg weight classes in men’s freestyle, and will have the opportunity at the Pan American Olympic Qualifier in Mexico and the World Olympic Qualifier in Turkey.
