Just like that the World Championships have come and gone. Before we turn the page on the international scene for 2019, we should go through some of the observations from the tournament. Since there is so much to unpack from the entire World Championships, we’ll break these articles down by style. Earlier this week, we looked into the Greco-Roman and Women’s freestyle team so we’ll move on to the last group that competed last week in our “Five Things I Learned from the 2019 World Championships”.

Where to start? Like the women’s freestyle team, it’s hard to put your finger on exactly how we should qualify this performance of the men’s team.
