Jordan Burroughs named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for May 8-14



Jordan Burroughs (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for May 8-14.

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.

Burroughs went 5-0 to lead the U.S. freestyle team to a third-place finish in the World Cup this past weekend in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Burroughs, a 2011 World champion at 74 kg/163 lbs., defeated wrestlers from Japan, Turkey, Iran, Georgia and Russia in the event.

He beat Iran’s Sadegh Goudarzi in a rematch of last year’s finals of the World Championships.

Burroughs has now won 34 straight matches at the Senior level. He won the U.S. Olympic Team Trials last month in Iowa City, and will be one of the favorites at this summer’s Olympic Games in London.

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
