Olympic champion Yui Susaki and Miwa Morikawa provided a women's wrestling double for Japan at the World Wrestling Championships in Serbia's capital Belgrade.

Susaki regained her 50 kilograms title that she won in 2018 with a victory by fall against Mongolia's Otgonjargal Dolgorjav at the Štark Arena.

She has now won three gold medals at the World Championships, having also triumphed at 48kg in Paris in 2017.

Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist Sarah Hildebrandt of the United States earned bronze by thrashing Romania's Alina Vuc 10-0, and was joined on the podium by Poland's Anna Łukasiak after she edged past Nigeria's Mercy Genesis 3-2, her opponent arriving in Belgrade having won Commonwealth Games gold in Birmingham last month.

Morikawa had to settle for silver at last year's World Championships in Oslo, but the 65kg Asian champion went one better by beating China's Long Jia 2-0.

American Mallory Velte eased past Bulgarian Mimi Hristova 11-2 in one of the bronze medal bouts, while France's Koumba Larroque won a closer tie against Azerbaijan's Elis Manolova 3-2.

Olympic bronze medallist Yasemin Adar of Turkey also claimed gold on the fifth day of competition, triumphing at 76kg in women's wrestling by overpowering Egypt's Samar Amer 6-0.

Adar was formerly 75kg world champion in 2017, and is the reigning European champion at 76kg.

Yuka Kagami of Japan earned bronze in the same weight category with a 4-0 victory over Ecuador's Génesis Reasco, while Estonia's Epp Mäe won her fourth World Championships medal with a 2-1 win against Justina Di Stasio of Canada.

The US' Dominique Parrish was the other gold medallist on the fifth day of the Championships, claiming victory in the women's wrestling 53kg event.

She beat Mongolia's Batkhuyagiin Khulan 4-2 in the final.

Commonwealth Games gold medallist Vinesh Phogat of India saw off Sweden's Jonna Malmgren 8-0 to take bronze, and was joined on the podium by Greece's Maria Prevolaraki, who thrashed Ecuador's Lucía Yépez 14-4.

Women's wrestling events are set to conclude tomorrow in Belgrade with finals in the 57kg, 59kg, 68kg and 72kg weight divisions, and men's freestyle competition is due to begin with the 70kg, 79kg, 86kg and 125kg qualification rounds and semi-finals.
