Japan’s Tsugumi Sakurai recorded a dominant 10-0 technical fall win over Germany’s Nina Hemmer in the women’s 55-kilogram final on Tuesday, capturing a gold medal in her freestyle wrestling senior world championships debut.

The 20-year-old Ikuei University student, who won the 55-kg title at last year’s national championships and this year’s national invitational, needed just 2 minutes and 8 seconds to secure Japan’s first victory at the Jordal Amfi arena in Oslo.
