Max Nowry, America's Most Consistent Greco Wrestler

It seems that Max Nowry is going to medal at every tournament now, or at least wrestle for bronze. He is consistently great. It would be awesome if they had an Olympic weight closer to his natural body mass, but who would bet against him? Yesterday:

Quote:
ROME, Italy The USA collected a pair of Greco-Roman medals on Wednesday at the Matteo Pellicone International, the first UWW Ranking Series event of 2020, in Rome, Italy.

At 55 kg, Max Nowry, a 2019 World Military Games bronze medalist, secured the silver medal after a day of round-robin action. Wrestling in a four-man bracket, Nowry went 2-1 on Wednesday. In his final match, Nowry took on 2013 Junior World champion and 2018 University World bronze medalist Serif Kilic of Turkey to determine his place.

Nowry went up 3-0 early after drawing a passivity from Kilic and scoring a gut wrench. Shortly into the second period, Nowry used a lat drop for four points, putting Kilic to his back and getting the fall in 3:49.

Best of Luck to Max. He has been wrestling a LONG TIME, and has earned every award thus far. Great Guy. He is as focused now going into his 30's as he was for his first state title back in 08. Go for Gold!

He did it again.

Max Nowry is a winner who wins after winning. Then, he wins some more. Here's an article at themat.com about more international exploits from him:

Quote:
At 55 kg, Nowry won his second-consecutive Pan American Championships title with a swift 10-0 technical fall against Kieran Akhtar of Canada.

The American went up 6-0 early with a pair of takedowns, including a four-pointer. He finished off the bout with an arm throw to secure the dominant win.
