Wrestling Olympic Trials: Former Cyclone Varner earns spot on U.S. team

Published October 20th, 2012 by Admin

IOWA CITY, Ia. — Coleman Scott stopped mid-sentence Saturday night, an Olympic Trials champion awestruck by the scene around him.

Two past Olympic wrestling teams stood center stage inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The biggest crowd in Olympic Trials history applauded. Dan Gable stepped to the front of the line in the city he turned wrestling-crazy and 13,750 roared.

Scott watched in admiration as the ovation for Gable lasted more than 30 seconds. By the time it ended, he forgot the original question and his emotions came out.

“I don’t like Iowa, but you come here and it’s awesome — there’s nothing (bad) I can say about it,” said Scott, an NCAA champion for Iowa rival Oklahoma State. “Iowa did an awesome job hosting this thing so far. … We doubled (the 2008 Olympic Trials attendance) here. That’s pretty cool to me.”

USA Wrestling brought the Trials to Iowa City in search of bigger crowds, louder cheers and a better sendoff for its Olympians — and Carver-Hawkeye Arena delivered Saturday.
