They said there would be matches at the 2016 Superior International Greco Camp and they weren’t kidding. Right off the bat, there will be a dual meet between Junior US and Swedish wrestlers this evening (Wednesday), which closes out only the third day of the camp. And because virtually the entire Junior World Team is attendance, all of the names you would hope to see are getting in on the action: Randon Miranda, Dalton Roberts, Taylor LaMont, Jamal DeArmond, Kamal Bey, Nick Reenan, G’Angelo Hancock, and Michael Rogers are all going to be a part of the festivities.
We will have results and other information as it gets passed along. The last two days of the Superior International Greco Camp were already set aside for competition between the athletes (to go along with any live go’s that took place each practice), so the dual meet taking place on just the third day is a great way to get the Juniors involved and engaged early on to set the tone for the remainder of the proceedings. As NMU-OTS head coach Rob Hermann said here last week, “This is like a pre-tour before they go to the Worlds. Make your mistakes here so you don’t make them at the World Championships.”
A substantial number of the wrestlers on both sides at the camp and competing tonight have solid international experience. Most from the US team have traveled overseas for various tours and meets and Sweden brought with them a couple of athletes who have been age group World Team members. In addition, participants like Miranda, DeArmond, Anton Olsson (SWE), and Hancock attended the Concord camp last month in California and wrestled at the Junior Greco World Duals.
