    MMWA sends youth wrestlers to the Olympic Training Center

    The Mid-Michigan Wrestling association sent five Michigan wrestlers to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs this week for a full Olympic experience.  Each wrestler was randomly chosen following the MMWA season in March.  Each club was able nominate 13 & 14 year olds that they thought deserved a chance for selection.  The following wrestlers are now in Colorado training with the best:

    • Ashton Light - Kearsley
    • Gabe Cappellano - Howell Hurricanes
    • Ishaiah Joy - Bendle
    • Jimmy Colley - Team Donahoe
    • Austin Matheney - Madison Rams
    • Nicholas Dimitroff - Michigan Revolution
    • Antonio Nauss - Michigan Matcats

    These wrestlers are staying in the dorms, eating in the mess hall and wrestling on the OLYMPIC MATS with their heroes!!!  MMWA has sponsored these wrestlers by supporting some of the travel costs and providing a small allowance.  This is a tradition that MMWA hopes to continue to help reward wrestlers for their hard work and dedication to this sport.

    Michigan USA Wrestling is proud of you guys!!!
