Day five of the World Championships continues tomorrow from Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan and with it brings the first full day of women’s freestyle. Four weights will be contested with two of them (57 and 76 kg) being Olympic weights. Anyone that finishes in the top five qualifies their country for the 2020 Olympics. For each day of the competition, we’ll do a bracket breakdown for the action that will take place on the following day. With tomorrow’s bracket having been released, here’s what we can expect from the next four women’s weights.

57 kg - Jenna Burkert will start her third World Championship event in the Round of 32 on the top half of the 57-kilo bracket by facing Lenka Hockova Martinakova (Czech Republic). Hockova Martinakova is a veteran that has been competing on the Senior level since 2005. Even with her longevity, the Czech has never placed higher than fifth at the European Championships, which she did in 2011, and was 15th this year. This will be her tenth World Championships event and her best showing was 13th place back in 2017.
