For the first time I can remember, the Wrestling World Championships are being hosted in the United States, and the competition will take place September 7-12, 2015 at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas Nevada
After winning a silver medal at the 2000 Sydney games. I made the 2001 US world team at 85kg and was going to have the opportunity to wrestling in New York city in front of my home country. Only a week before the world championships were going to take place in New York City, Terrorist attacked our country killing 2,996 people only blocks from where the world championship were to be held.
I never did have a chance to compete in front of American fans at world championships.
