KRASNOYARSK, Russia - Alyssa Lampe (Colorado Springs, Colo./Gator WC) captured a bronze medal at 48 kg/105.5 lbs. on the second day of the Ivan Yarygin Memorial International on Saturday.
Lampe went 3-1 on the day, and defeated fellow American Sara Fulp-Allen (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) in the bronze-medal match, 8-4, 4-2. Fulp-Allen finished fifth with a 2-2 record.
Lampe opened the tournament with two wins, stopping Bambazaya Chogtbaatap of Mongolia, 2-0, 4-0 then pinning Marina Oydopova of Russia in the second match. Her only loss came in the semifinals, where she lost to veteran Russian star Lorisa Oorzhak of Russia, 0-3, 1-5. Oorzhak went on to win the gold medal.
Another U.S. women's wrestler won two bouts on Saturday, two-time U.S. World Team member Elena Pirozkhova (Colorado Springs, Colo./Gator WC) at 63 kg/138.5 lbs.
Pirozkhova opened with a victory over Natalia Laushkina of Russia, 3-0, 1-0, then fell to Sayko Nagasimo of Japan with a second period fall. He won his first repechage match over Baypaaya Tsendedorg of Mongolia, with a second period pin. In the next round, she was eliminated by eventual bronze medalist Lubov Volosova of Russia, with a third period fall.
The women's competition is over after two days, and the U.S. won two medals. On Friday, Kelsey Campbell (Colorado Springs, Colo./Sunkist Kids) won a gold medal at 59 kg/130 lbs.
The men's competition continued with two weight classes on Saturday, 60 kg/132 lbs. and 84 kg/185 lbs. The U.S. had no medalists for the day.
At 84 kg/185 lbs., Travis Paulson (Ames, Iowa/Sunkist Kids) finished with a 2-2 record. Among his losses was to Anzor Urishev of Russia, who placed second in the tournament.
Also at 84 kg/185 lbs., 2009 World silver medalist Jake Herbert (Evanston, Ill./New York AC) finished with a 1-1 record. After an opening win against a Russian opponent, Herbert lost in three periods to 2006 World champion Ibragim Aldatov of Ukraine. When Aldatov was beaten by Urishev in the semifinals, Herbert was eliminated from the repechage.
2009 World Team member Shawn Bunch (Columbus, Ohio/Gator WC) lost his opening match at 60 kg/132 lbs. and was eliminated.
"Today was better for Team USA than day one, however, certain key mistakes kept our guys from winning medals. They included not finished periods strong, letting guys to our legs too easy, and getting turned," said Assistant National Coach Brandon Slay.
