Yesterday marked the opening of the 2017 Junior Greco World Duals held at the Community Youth Center in Concord, California. The event, famous for its inclusion of European teams, presents seven rounds of dual meet competition followed by a tournament that is seeded according to individual dual results. A swarm of notable age-group athletes are taking part in the two-day event, and several Cadet and Junior World Team members from both the US and elsewhere are still in the mix. 2016 Cadet World Team member Peyton Omania (CYC) and now-two time Junior World Team member Randon Miranda (NYAC-OTS) won this event last year and are still alive heading into today’s action, though the latter endured a surprising loss on Day 1.

“It was a hard first day with a lot of guys having tough matches,” CYC head coach and event director Mark Halvorson said last night. “A two-time World medalist was pinned in his first dual, (Randon) Miranda lost to a very tough kid from Sweden, and very few wrestlers are undefeated. Scandinavia, Vikings and Kansas/Missouri all lost one dual, so it’s going to come down to which team can make it through tomorrow and win the individual tournament.”

That’s the key — team scores are tabulated by both dual and individual tournament results. If this thing comes down to the wire, all it might take is a wrestler or two fighting through and advancing to the finals or medal round to pull his team over the top. The action is typically intense at the Junior World Duals and it is looking very much like 2017’s edition of the event is shaping up to be an extremely tight race.

We’ll have more on Day 2 as the situation develops, so stay tuned.
