Sofia Macaluso has been dominating at the junior world championships advancing to the finals with all pins in her last three matches.

Macaluso will take on Ruka Natami of Japan who has pretty much cruised into the finals with ease but not as dominant as Macaluso.

Amit Elor up at 72kg has been as dominant as you can ask as well with a pin in the opening round, a tech in the quarters and another tech in the semifinals to claim herself a spot in the world finals. To add to this the longest any of her opponents have made it is 2:23 and that was in the semifinals.

Elor has outscored her opponents a combined 31-1 so far in this tournament. She will be taking on Anastassiya Panassovich of Kazakhstan who just won win a late comeback over Sumire Niikura of Japan 7-6.

Elor is a massive favorite here and should have no real trouble grabbing the win in the finals.

Katie Gomez has been pulled back into repechage and will face Nazife Tair of Bulgaria to make it to the bronze medal match.

Adaugo Nwachukwu has been pulled back into repechage after Sonam of India made the finals and she will face Tynys Dubek of Kazakhstan to make it to the bronze medal match.

Reese Larramendy has been pulled back into repechage as well after Japan made the finals and she will face Eniko Elekes of Hungary to make it to the bronze medal match.
