Waterloo native & 2015 NCAA Wrestling Champion, Kyven Gadson, will help kick off the 2017 Iowa Games Friday during the Opening Ceremony.
Keynote speaker Kyven Gadson, former East High School wrestler and recent Olympic team trials semifinalist, applauded the achievement and encouraged attendees not to fear change.
Gadson did when he moved to Waterloo and enrolled in Logan Middle School. “Now I stand here at a little less than 24 years old, I embrace change.”
The lasting image Kyven Gadson left with the Iowa State wrestling team sums him up better than any story ever could.
