Sofia Macaluso Brings Home Junior World Silver


Sofia Macaluso had an incredible tournament pinning her way to the world finals. Unfortunately it did not go here way in the finals falling to Japan’s Ruka Natami 6-1.

Macaluso pinned in her 3 matches putting up an incredible showing throughout the tournament. Pinning Sito of India in the round of 16, Aurora Russo of Italy in the quarterfinals, and Melda Dernekci of Turkey in the semifinals.

Team USA remains in 3rd place behind Japan and India at the moment after this win and Amit Elor will be in the finals also looking for gold at 72kg.

She has recently committed to continue her wrestling career at East Stroudsburg University where her sister Mia wrestles as well. She will most likely be competing at the 123 or 130 pound division in college but definitely has a bright future either way
