Also competing at 65 kg in women’s freestyle is Emma Bruntil, who has already collected two international gold medals in 2022, counting the Ivan Yarygin in January and Dan Kolov-Nikola Petrov International last week, defeating both Molinari and Velte in their respective finals.

Senior World Team members Amy Fearnside (WFS 50 kg) and Victoria Francis (WFS 76 kg) are also making the trip to Turkey.
