Thomas Gilman receives draw for 2018 World Championships

Former Iowa Hawkeye All American and current Hawkeye Wrestling Club member Thomas Gilman has received his draw for the 2018 World Championships in Budapest.

While Gilman is still young per senior level standards he brings in plenty of experience and world level hardware. Gilman is the 2017 World silver medalist and earlier this year won the always tough Yasar Dogu in Turkey. He also won a Junior World medal and competed at Cadet Worlds.

The reigning World champion is Yuki Takahashi of Japan. He posted a 4-1 win over Gilman in the World Cup. The two 2017 World bronze medalists are Bekhbayar Erdenebat of Mongolia and Andrey Yatsenko of Ukraine.
