World Cup 2018

Gadson Strong Announcement (GSA): I have an important GSA for you all. I was informed by USA Men's Freestyle Head Coach Bill Zadick that I have been selected to the 2018 Men's Freestyle World Cup Team.

Set to be hosted at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on the campus of the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa on April 7-8, the World Cup is the annual international freestyle dual meet championships and provides a tremendous showcase for the world's best wrestlers just a few weeks after the conclusion of the U.S. college wrestling season.

I will be representing my country as the 97 kilogram alternative for this very special and prestigious two day event that will take place in the town that I was birthed in and resided in before moving to my hometown of Waterloo, IA.


I'm just very pleased to have the opportunity to represent the United States and be a part of this 2018 World Cup Team. Not many people have the chance to compete for our country so I am extremely proud to know that my hard work, dedication, and committment has put me in this position.


This opportunity is great for myself, my family, and a chance for me to represent my faith. Also I believe this will be great exposure for the Cyclone Regional Training Center (C-RTC) as we look to build our presence in the state of Iowa and throughout the World.


I'm really excited for this event and the preparation leading up to this historical showdown. After ending the 22 year championship drought at the 2017 World Championships last year. I'm excited to be a part of the team that will end the 15 year World Cup Championship drought on the April 7-8.
