He then faced Azerbaijan’s Ziraddin Bayramov in the quarterfinals where he battled but fell 14-11. Hardy was then pulled back in and topped Moldova’s Pavel Graur 7-4 in the wrestle-backs to advance to Wednesday morning’s bronze medal match.

In the third-place match, Hardy faced Georgia’s Goga Otinashvili. After trailing 4-0, Hardy came back to win 8-5 and claim the bronze. "

U.S. Men’s freestyle wins team title, Trumble gets gold, Hardy earns Bronze​

2023 U23 World Championships
At Tirana, Albania, October 23-29
Team Results

1. United States, 148 pts.

2. Turkey, 113
3. Azerbaijan, 87
4. UWW, 86
5. Japan, 71

"The United States locked up the team title in men’s freestyle Wednesday night at the 2023 U23 World Championships in Tirana, Albania. Team USA had six medalists for men’s freestyle, a new record for the U23 age group."

"The United States men’s freestyle team has its fourth World champion of the tournament. Isaac Trumble (97 kg) bested Radu Lefter of Moldova in a 12-2 dominating technical fall. Trumble led early, taking Lefter down twice, forcing him out of bounds, and adding a takedown to lead 8-0 through the first three minutes. Lefter responded with a takedown, but it wasn’t enough as Trumble locked in the victory with two more takedowns. The Nebraska native, who wrestles for NC State, captured gold in his first international competition."

"Hardy, who wrestles for Nebraska, is heading home with a World bronze medal as he defeated Georgia's Goga Otinashvili in a rough 8-5 decision. The Georgian was first on the board with a throw that scored four. Hardy fired back with a takedown but there was debate about Otinashvili's knee to the mat, so the United States challenged the call. The officials ruled in favor of Georgia, and it was a 5-2 match. Hardy responded with three gritty takedowns to capture the bronze."

"Nebraska has ties to three wrestlers who competed this weekend at the Henri Deglane Grand Prix in Nice, France.

Not only did former NCAA finalist Tyler Berger earn a bronze medal at 74 kg, but two future Huskers competed at their first senior-level tournament with solid results. Both participating in Team USA’s ‘Elite Accelerator Program’, Camden McDanel and Kael Lauridsen both are taking gray shirts and pushing back the beginning of their eligibility to next season.

A U20 World Bronze Medalist this past summer at 97 kg, McDanel is a true blue-chip recruit for the Huskers. A two-time U17 Pan-American gold medalist for Team USA, Lauridsen is a Bennington native and four-time Nebraska state champion. Both will join the Huskers next season for their true freshman years after taking a gap year to train at the Olympic Training Center this year."

"McDanel went a perfect 3-0 on Saturday to earn the gold medal at 92 kg. He beat Kazakhstan’s Islyambek Ilyassov 4-0 before downing Austria’s Benjamin Greil 7-2 in the semis. In the final, McDanel poured on the pressure to melt Kazakhstan’s Abdimanap Baigenzheyer via 11-0 tech fall in just 3:51."
