Day Eight of the World Championships continues tomorrow from Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan and with it brings the final full day of men’s freestyle. Four weights will be contested with two of them 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 final four men’s freestyle weights.

61 kg - Longtime veteran and first-time world team member Tyler Graff will start his tournament in the Round of 32 by facing South Korea’s, Jincheol Kim. This year Kim was fifth at the Asian Championships and a year ago he was 18th at the World Championships. Kim competed in the 2016 Olympics and finished 11th at the 55 kg weight class.
