The 2005 women’s freestyle World Team Trials finals at 51 kg featured six-time World team member Stephanie Murata vs. five-time age group World medalist Mary Kelly. Murata, a 2001 World silver medalist, proved too much for the up-and-coming Kelly.

Murata would make one more World Team in 2007, to bring her total Senior World appearances to eight. In 2009, she earned a silver medal at the No-Gi Grappling World Championships. Kelly would make a Senior World Team at 48 kg in 2006.
