Pulaski Days

Some USA Wrestlers grabbed some medals in Poland over the weekend while racking up some very notable wins with young talent and bright futures on display. 

BJ Futrell claimed silver with a win over the defending Olympic Gold medalist. James Green, Nick Gwiazdowski, and Joey McKenna added bronze medals to the haul.

Green fell to the 2015 World silver in a very close match, but continues to rack up wins displaying his prowess at 70 kg.

Gwiz dropped a very tight match with the 2016 Russian National Champ showing his international potential. With grumblings over Dlagnev's health, American fans may be pointing at this result as something to think about. 

On the Greco side, Patrick Martinez was able to claim the bronze at 80 kg. He will compete in University Worlds later this year.
