The second episode of the Five Point Move Podcast is up and ready. For our first guest, we wanted to get a Greco-Roman athlete who accomplished big things on the mat, big things off the mat and more than anything, is just a genuinely great person — that’s why it’s two-time Olympian and six-time World Team member Spenser Mango. Now an assistant coach for the Army/WCAP, the team in which he finished his career and experienced plenty of high points with, Mango opens up about how he has felt so far in his early post-retirement along with some of the challenges (and advantages) he faces in his emerging coaching career.
Also involved are USA Wrestling’s new emphasis on the United World Wrestling Greco-Roman rule-set. This includes “hooking” as well as the new caution-and-two on the table for the second call on finger-grabbing. Needless to say, co-host Dennis Hall has some reactions to this topic that are also worth the price of admission. Other aspects of Mango’s career and a couple of stories bookend the program.
The Five Point Move Podcast is being brought to you by the Mat Talk Online and a very special thanks goes out to Jason Bryant for his assistance in both the production and distribution of the podcast.
