Japan's Yui Sasaki captured a third Cadet Wrestling World Championships title as women's freestyle competition got underway in Georgia's capital Tbilisi.

She was in fine form in the under 49kg category as she defeated Russian Mariia Tiumerekova 10-0 by technical fall for gold.

The final victory followed a dominant run to the final which began with a 46-second technical win over European cadet runner-up Zhala Aliyeva of Azerbaijan.

Her first three bouts were all won in just over two minutes, but American Macey Kilty put up more of a fight before Sasaki secured a fall just over three minutes into the semi-final.

Kilty recovered to win bronze, beating Aliyeva, who had come through the repechage system, 13-2.

The second bronze went to Turkey's Zeynep Yetgil who beat Emanuela Liuzzi of Italy 6-2.

Japan also won the under 43kg class as Manami Uneo defeated Russia's Daria Khvostova 10-0 via technical fall for gold.
