Once again, it’s time for one of our sporadic strolls through the digital hallways of social media so that we can check in on what some of the country’s Greco-Roman athletes have been up to. It hasn’t been an uneventful period recently. A couple of Minnesota Storm wrestlers laced them up over in Serbia with one (Hayden Zillmer) coming away with a bronze medal. Former US National Team member Nate Engel has come out of retirement and is currently in Israel preparing with Team USA for the 20th Maccabiah Games, which begin this week. And finally, just a couple of days ago was the Fourth of July. As expected, many celebrated, some in peculiar ways.
Bey is trying to do things that “scare him” and apparently he is off to a solid start.
That’s one way to kill time.
Two World teams in 2017, three (really four) in two years
The feeling of conquering…

Coach Paulson offers an inspired take
The look of exhaustion, this guy will never want to wrestle him again. Which is part of the goal https://t.co/p6OjZt2xLJ

He’s a romantic
Saying it’s been a nice couple of days for Stefanowicz is a bit of an understatement.
I married my best friend over this weekend. Taking a trip out to Gatlinburg with a few family members and a small intimate wedding ended being an absolute wonderful experience. This ride is something we have already began, This changes nothing but the way in which others view us…but damn if it doesn’t feel awesome! #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #usa #family #memories
Stef wasn’t the only Marine enjoying himself
