Woodbine's Snyder 1st U.S. man to repeat at Yarygin Grand Prix

2016 Olympic champion and two-time world champion Kyle Snyder of Woodbine became the first United States man to win two Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix gold medals with a victory at 97 kilograms/213 pounds at the open tournament Sunday in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. In the final match of the tournament, Snyder defeated Rasul Magomedov of Russia, 4-1, in the gold-medal bout. Snyder trailed 1-0 after being put on the shot clock in the first period but forced a step-out with just a few seconds left in the period to head into the break with a 1-1 tie. In the second period, Snyder added a single leg takedown, then forced a step-out on the edge to extend the lead and close out the victory. It was a rematch of the 2017 Ivan Yarygin finals, won by Snyder by pin in 5 minutes, 2 seconds. Snyder was named the Best Foreign Wrestler of this year's tournament. He won his opening bout with a 10-0 technical fall over Shobet Belliyev of Turkmenistan, then controlled Yunus Dede of Turkey, 6-1, in the quarterfinals. Snyder was trailing in the final minute of the semifinals, when he scored twice to defeat Vladislav Baitcaev of Russia, 5-1. Snyder, a two-time NCAA champion and three-time finalist for Ohio State, will return to the U.S. to conclude his senior season. Sunday was the second day in a row that an American won the Yarygin back-to-back years, as women's freestyle star Tamyra Stock claimed her second straight Yarygin title on Saturday in the women's 68-kg division. Penn State's David Taylor became the 12th U.S. men's freestyle wrestler to win a Yarygin title when he captured the gold medal at 86 kg/189 lbs. on Sunday by pinning Fatih Erdin of Turkey in 2:00. The men's division at the Yarygin is a United World Wrestling ranking tournament, which will help determine the seeds at the 2018 world championships in Budapest, Hungary.
