Published January 31st, 2018 by Nlwcadmin

NLWC Resident Athlete David Taylor (86 kg/189 lbs.) captured gold earlier today at the Yarygin Grand Prix in Krasnoyarsk, Russia!   David became only the 12th U.S. men's freestyle wrestler to ever win a Yarygin title.  This accomplishment is especially noteworthy since the Yarygin is considered the toughest open tournament in the world!


David won his first match by 4-4 criteria over two-time Pan American champion Yurieski Torreblanca Queralta of Cuba.  In the quarterfinals, David defeated 2016 Olympic silver medalist Selim Yasar of Turkey 4-1.  He pinned Artur Naifanov of Russia in 2:27 in the semifinal round.  And to finish the day, David won by fall in 2:00 over Fatih Erdin of Turkey in the gold medal match.
