Correct - good call Yank
Artur NAIFONOV (RUS) df. Zahid VALENCIA (USA) by VPO1, 7 - 5
Definitely thought Zahid was going to win that year. Last year junior, third world championship, rolled into the finals. Faced an (obviously, looking back now) good opponent.

Another 2017 Junior world championships note- Russia is sending David Baev at 70kg, who beat Deakin in the finals that year.
