Jordan Holm named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for May 17-23



Jordan Holm (Minneapolis, Minn./Minnesota Storm) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for May 17-23.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level.

Holm knocked off 2010 World champion Hristo Marinov of Bulgaria 0-3, 3-0, 2-0 to key the U.S. to a 4-3 dual-meet win over a team of international stars at the Curby Cup on Saturday in La Grange, Ill.

Holm, who won the U.S. Open last month, delivered a key win in the Greco-Roman dual at 84 kg/185 lbs. Teammates Justin Ruiz and Dremiel Byers followed with victories to rally the U.S. to a win before more than 1,000 fans at Lyons Township High School.

Holm will be the No. 1 seed for next month’s U.S. World Team Trials in Oklahoma City.

The Curby Cup is held in memory of the late Jacob Curby, a U.S. National Team member who passed away last year at age 25.

Note: To nominate a wrestler for TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week, send the athlete's name, accomplishments for the week and career accomplishments to Craig Sesker at csesker@usawrestling.org
