RTC Cup Thoughts

Published December 6th, 2020 by James Green

I’m a firm believer in controlling what you can control. It’s no secret that every quad non-Olympic weights have a decision to make in order to compete at the Olympic Games. I’m not sure if it’s easy for any one to truly decide. Do I go up or down 10lbs? If I go down, can I compete with the same effort and energy? If I go up, can I move the bigger guys like I’m accustomed to? Is there enough time to make the proper adjustments needed? Prior to Covid, I was committed to going up to 74kg. It’s December 5th and I find myself wrestling at 68kg. Even though it was a 3hr weigh in, there was a significant difference from my 2016 performance when we were still in night before weigh ins. How do I feel? I feel great and I’m ready to commit to this process! I was going to wait until after the 8-man bracket to decide, but I want to put ever one on notice. 65kg ... I’m coming.

2018 World Championships: Budapest, Hungary

Published October 9th, 2018 by James Green

As we get ready to depart for the 2018 world championships in Budapest, Hungary I took the time to reflect on how I am getting another opportunity to represent USA wrestling. I started wrestling when I was 6 years old. I had no idea about the sport and like many of my peers I wanted to play football. As a child, I always imagined myself being the running back at Ohio St. or Penn St. and then taking my talents to the NFL. LaDainian Tomlinson was my favorite running back and I wanted to be just like him. I was small, fast, and very competitive. Football was my first love.
