2012 Olympic champion and four-time World champion Jordan Burroughs represented the United States at 74 kg at the World Championships and Olympic Games every year since 2011. This year, he suffered his first World/Olympic Team Trials defeat, falling to two-time World champion at 79 kg Kyle Dake in the best-of-three championship series at the 2021 Olympic Team Trials in Fort Worth, Texas.

Burroughs sat down with USA Wrestling this week while attending the Olympic Team Training Camp in Colorado Springs in his first interview since the Trials. He discusses dealing with the loss as well as his future in wrestling.
