2019 World Senior Championships

World Senior Championships begin tomorrow.
Greco Roman will be first style showcased and our own Max Nowry (Wheeling HS) will be hitting the mats.

In predicting an over / under medal count for USA Greco, I'm going with 1 medal.
What do you guys say?

Go Team USA!

Lauden Swain



The draws for tomorrow have been completed:

NUR-SULTAN, Kazakhstan The first U.S. Greco-Roman wrestlers have received their draws for the World Wrestling Championships, and will begin competition on Saturday.

Max Nowry will wrestle 2018 World champion Eldaniz Azizli of Azerbaijan this evening for bronze.

Coleman defeated returning bronze medalist in first round but then was defeated by a wrestler that ultimately did not reach semis thus eliminating Coleman from advancing to repecharge

Team USA Greco struggling and in danger of getting shutout in medal count

Last three Greco entrants for Team USA are eliminated thus the team acquires no medals and not qualifying a single weight for 2020 Olympics.

He's been on age group world teams but this is his first Senior World Championships. He still has a couple of years to get his grown-man strength! Plus, I think Greco champions tend to be on the older side, at least compared to freestyle. His fifth-place finish was the bright spot for the team. Ellis Coleman had a dominant first-round win against a very good wrestler, but he couldn't finish in the second round. They will both have an excellent practice partner with which to improve.

Important to note that Nowry lost to the Silver medalist by a 2-3 score. Give him a couple of years now that he has Senior World's experience! Here's the write up about Max Nowry.


GO IRTC!!!

Unfortunately, it is not an Olympic weight, will-I-am.

He has now wrestled for a world medal. I have no idea what that's like. I do know Nowry was very hungry for success, and this likely made him even hungrier.

GO IRTC!!!
