When Randon Miranda (60 kg, Rise, 5PM #4) earned silver on Saturday, he became the first United States athlete to garner two Thor Masters medals. Miranda, 24, also finished with a silver at the 2018 edition of the Scandinavian mega-event, which was only one part of his overall impressive run that season. Later that year, Miranda also won the Bill Farrell Memorial before coming away with National Team honors at the World Team Trials.

The US does not have a lengthy Thor Masters history. ‘16 represented the first time an American delegation traveled to Denmark for the tournament and left without hardware. In their second year, Team USA put forth a very strong showing with golds from recent Olympian Ildar Hafizov (60 kg, Army/WCAP, 5PM #1) and Robby Smith, with now-three-time World Teamer Patrick Smith (72 kg, Minnesota Storm, 5PM #1) placing third. Both Miranda and Jesse Thielke (67 kg, Army/WCAP, 5PM #4) picked up silver in ‘19 -- and Brady Koontz (55 kg, TMWC/Ohio RTC) did the same in ‘20.

World Team Camp ‘21

On Wednesday, the ‘21 World Team will arrive in New Jersey to prepare for the Oslo Worlds (Greco begins on Thursday, October 7). The Edge in Hoboken, which aside from normally hosting high schoolers also serves as a location for the NYC Regional Training Center, will be the site for a week-long (or thereabouts) gathering intended to prime the athletes during their brief window between the Trials and World Championships.

It was only 10 days ago when the Team was selected; and though the wrestlers who did prevail in Lincoln were and are in competitive condition, periodization is still a concern. Camp in Hoboken is expected to inject an even balance when it comes to intensity and recovery, a protocol that has been a staple for the US program in similar hard camps.

The roster for camp can be found below. Aside from the World Team members themselves, four training partners are also set for involvement.
