Purpose: to determine, to conduct a comparative analysis, to analyze the previous achievements of the prize-winners of the 2022 World Championship in freestyle wrestling. Material and methods. The research used the following methods: analysis of scientific and methodological information and Internet sources, analysis of the results of wrestlers' performances, methods of mathematical statistics. All performances of athletes who took first to third place at the 2022 World Championship (Belgrade, Serbia) in freestyle wrestling were analyzed. In total, 40 sports careers of freestyle wrestlers were analyzed, including 10 competition winners and 30 athletes who took second and third place. For the purpose of comparative analysis, athletes were divided into two groups: winners (n=10) and wrestlers who took 2-3 places (n=30). The results of the performances are taken from the official website of the international wrestling federation United World Wrestling. Results: аmong the winners, only 30,0 % of the athletes were winners at the cadet competition, while among the prizewinners, this indicator is almost 7 % higher and is 36,7 %. A similar trend applies to achievement at the level of Cadet event medalists, with more than half (53,3 %) of the 2022 World Cup medalists being Cadet event medalists, while only 40,0 % of World Cup winners achieved such success among Cadets. It should be noted that almost 80,0 %, i.e., 4 out of 5 athletes who won prizes at the world championship took part in junior competitions, that is, already at this age they chose the right to represent their country at international competitions. This is a certain criterion that shows the prospects of athletes in the future. Separately, we should note that a fairly significant share (66,7 %) among the winners of the World Championship, if they took the prize place at the junior competitions, this is the first place, while this indicator for the athletes who took the prize places (2nd and 3rd places) was only 43,7 %. Thus, 60,0 % of the winners of the 2022 World Cup were winners of previous World Cups. It is worth noting that 30,0 % of the winners had no experience of participating in competitions of this class and took part for the first time and immediately won. Conclusions. The trends, when the winners of the world championships have smaller achievements among cadets and juniors than athletes who took second and third place at first glance are relatively paradoxical and cause doubts. But this is due to certain trends that have emerged in this particular world championship this year: four event winners from the United States of America, where international cadet and junior events are not as popular; there was a certain change of wrestlers after that year's Olympic Games; and it is important that the sample of 10 athletes is small and several athletes already make certain changes in the average values.
