Iowa Hawkeye recruit Spencer Lee will begin his quest for history in Macon, France tomorrow at 3:00 AM Central at the 2016 Junior World Championships. Lee is looking to become the first American to win three straight World titles and the third American to win two Junior World Championships. Ali Bernard (2003,2005) and Victoria Anthony (2009,2010) are the only two Americans to accomplish the feat. You can read our full preview for Lee here.
Quick look at the bracket. Spencer Lee draws Engin Cetin of Turkey in the first round. On his side of the bracket is his opponent from the 2015 Junior World Championships finals, Alireza Goodarzi (IRI) and bronze medalist Roman Gutsulyak (UKR). 2013 Cadet World Champion Ryo Matsui (JPN) will be on the top side of the bracket and will look to get back to a World Championship final.
