Stratford Native Wrestled for Gold Medal in Sweden

Stratford wrestler Macey Kilty took home a gold medal at the 2017 Cadet World Championship this year, after winning the 124-pound division during the final day of the Cadet competition at the Klippan Lady Open in Sweden. Last year, she took bronze.

“I think I wrestled with determination and the mindset to keep attacking,” Kilty said in an interview with USA Wrestling.

As the only American athlete to medal at the competition, Kilty helped the United States take third place overall, after seven other U.S. wrestlers placed in the top 10 of their respective weight classes.
