The 2018 IFMA Youth World Championships was a landmark moment for the USMF. Already considered the "Dream Team," this group of talented young athletes left huge shoes to fill for all upcoming USMF teams, both adult and junior.
According to Matt Lucas " This year was the most successful to date. The athletes collected a total of 31 wins with only 8 losses- an impressive 79%-win percentage. Of the 16 member team, 12 fighters got medals, with 8 of them being gold. It was the largest medal count in USA history for any team, both youth and adult."
