U.S. sending strong teams to Pan American Championships in Santiago, Chile, April 24-26

Some interesting names-Gabe Dean going Greco-Roman. Dean told me that he’s been training a long time, 2 weeks. Wow, I think that his style and body match up well with Greco but still there is a lot to learn. I bet Dake is helping him as he’s training at Finger Lakes. Mason Manville, still in high school, left Blair during the season to train Greco with the Minnesota Storm. Last of the initial comments is that not one wrestler from the NLWC is on the team. Last year Cuba had 5 gold but America won the team title.
