Hey sorry I have not been on in awhile, just been busy healing up from an injury from January, been training, the US Open, and now getting ready for the Beat The Streets dual against Russia in a few days, and getting ready for trials. But a little of what has been going on. In January I wrestled in the Yarigin tournament in Russia, which is probably the biggest tournament outside of the world and olympic championships, due to the amount of russians in each weight. I was wrestling really well in the tournament and was looking to win the tournament, I reached the semis and about 40 seconds into the match I got injured and had to injury default out of the tournament down to 5th. This was not a good feeling because I trained hard for this tournament and was wrestling really well, but things happen in wrestling and now I am all healed up.

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.
