ALEXANDRIA, Egypt —
Kollin Moore (TMWC/ORTC) won gold at 92 kg at the Ibhrahim Moustafa Ranking Event on Sunday in Egypt.
Moore won via medical forfeit against fellow American Nate Jackson (NYAC/NJRTC). To reach the finals, Moore scored a pair of technical falls over opponents from Georgia and Egypt.
Armenia’s Vazgen Tevanyan beat Joey McKenna (TMWC/PRTC), 8-2, in the 65 kg gold medal final.
McKenna pressured Tevanyan into a passivity call that held into the break. Tevanyan, a U23 World champion, quickly responded with a go-behind takedown before securing another one. He later added a gut wrench and another takedown. McKenna scored his second point on a caution.
Chance Marsteller (TMWC/NYRTC) won bronze after he beat Kazakhstan’s Bolat Sakayev, 2-1 at 79 kg. Marsteller trailed via passivity but scored the eventual winning takedown in the second period.
