A pair of U.S. Greco-Roman wrestlers, Billy Sullivan (Las Vegas, Nev./Legends of Gold - Las Vegas) at 55 kg and Randon Miranda (Palmdale, Calif./Rise RTC) at 60 kg, won their opening matches by pin on the first day of Thor Masters, an international Greco-Roman event in Nykobing Falster, Denmark on Friday.

Miranda opened with pin in 42 seconds over Jonatan Jednell of Sweden. He is in a four-athlete round robin and will have two more matches on Saturday.

Miranda was second in the 2021 Pan American Championships. He has competed on three U.S. age-group World Teams, two as a Junior and one at the U23 level.

Sullivan stopped Steven Ecker of Germany with a fall in 3:28. He also is competing in a four-athlete round robin and will have two more matches on Saturday.

Sullivan was a member of the 2021 Junior World Team, and won a bronze medal at the 2019 Pan American Junior Championships.

At 67 kg, Dominic Damon (Seattle, Wash./NMU/NTS) lost his opening match by technical fall to Adomas Grigaliunis of Lithuania. Damon has been placed in a four-athlete Pool A, and has at least one more match on Saturday, when he faces Pedro Caldas of Portugal.

Damon has been on two age-group World Teams, competing at the 2018 Cadet World Championships and the 2021 Junior World Championships.

Sullivan and Miranda competed in the Senior World Team Trials this past weekend, with both having a 1-2 record in the tournament.
