Kyrgyzstan's Aiperi Medet Kyzy stands out in the United World Wrestling (UWW) Under-23 World Championships in Belgrade with her Tokyo 2020 Olympic experience and bronze medal at the Senior World Championships earlier in the month.

The event begins tomorrow and is set to conclude on November 7 with 10 categories in each of a freestyle, Greco-Roman and women's wrestling division.

Despite losing her semi-final in the Japanese capital, Medet Kyzy will be hotly tipped to claim her first world title since 2017 in the women's under-76-kilogram weight class.

Challenging her will be the most recent junior world champion Kylie Welker of the United States.

The 18-year-old Welker, who also competed at the Senior World Championships, will be eager to capture her second world title of the year.

The women's under-50kg division also looks to be highly competitive with junior world champion Emily Shilson of the US and the Russian Wrestling Federation's Mariia Tiumerekova set to go head-to-head.

Shilson showed competitors what she was capable of at the Junior World Championships in Ufa in Russia as she mercilessly battled towards the gold medal.

Tiumerekova was crowned champion at the Under-23 European Championships in Skopje in Macedonia.

Other big names in the division are Belarusian Anastasiya Yanotava who was runner-up to Tiumerekova in Skopje and Lucia Yepez Guzman of Ecuador who competed at Tokyo 2020.

In the men's competitions, Vazgen Tevanyan returns to the Belexpocentar after winning a shock title at the Individual World Cup in December.

The Armenian enters the under-70kg class a month after participating in the Senior World Championships in Norwegian capital Oslo at the under-65kg level.

The silver medallist in Oslo, Ernazar Akmataliev of Kyrgyzstan and under-23 world champion Azerbaijani Turan Bayramov are also in with a shot of the gold medal.

Bayramov has a 13-5 record this season, but all five of his losses came against wrestlers who have World or European titles to their names.
