Victoria Anthony named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for July 20-26



Victoria Anthony (Huntington Beach, Calif./New York AC) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for July 20-26.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level.

Anthony became a two-time Junior World champion, after winning the gold medal at 48 kg/105.5 lbs. at the Junior World Championships at the Syma Arena on July 23 in Budapest, Hungary.

Anthony defeated Davaasuren Bayarmagnai of Mongolia in the gold-medal match, 1-0, 6-0.

Anthony claimed the first period with a clinch, then won the second period by technical fall after taking Bayarmagnai down, then turning her multiple times with an ankle lace.

She reached the finals with wins over Yasmine Abigai Leon Martinez of Mexico, Lenka Matajova of Slovakia and Jaqueline Schellen of Germany.

Anthony won a Junior World gold medal in 2009 at 44 kg/97 lbs., and moved up in weight this year to win her second straight Junior World title.
