Day two of the World Championships continues tomorrow from Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan. Next up are three men’s Greco-Roman weight. They have an increased amount of significance since all three are 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 weights. 

67 kg - Ellis Coleman begins his 2019 World Championships by facing the fourth seed Meiirzhan Shermakhanbet (Kazakhstan) in the first round. After just one session of action, we have heard a vocal, partisan crowd cheering on their own wrestlers. We’ll expect the same here, as well. Shermakhanbet is a 2018 World bronze medalist that has gone on to take silver at the Asian Championships and bronze at the Dan Kolov in 2019.
