Spanish Conquest

James Green and David Taylor won gold as USA sent several wrestlers to Madrid for the Grand Prix of Spain. 

David Taylor is still really good at wrestling. He showed tremendous point scoring ability making him an incredibly dangerous international wrestler. Of course, domestically Taylor has not been able to break through but it's great to see him out there beating guys including Mongolia's Olympic representative. 

James Green continues his assault at the 70 kg weight class. Initially, UWW did not plan to have World medals given in the non-Olympic weight classes but an announcement in May gave birth to the idea that James Green has a very good chance at a 2016 World Gold. He has not made the team yet and you wonder who will challenge and if Green's 2015 bronze will allow him to sit out to the best 2 of 3. Still, Green continues to prove he is clearly one of the best in the world at 70 kg. 

The Women's side brought back three medals through customs with Becka Leathers claiming silver when she reached the finals with a couple pins. Tamyra Mensah and Victoria Anthony claimed bronze medals in their right.
