Ogunsanya, Altomer and Treanor Lead the WPWC at the 2022 USMC US Open in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV | May 1, 2022

PJ Ogunsanya lead our Senior athletes with a 2nd place finish at the 2022 USMC US Open Wrestling Championships in Las Vegas, NV. Competing in Greco at 72kg in the Senior Division, Ogunsanya's winning ways came to an end in an exciting finals match against the 2020 Senior Nationals Champion Benji Peak.  The 2nd place finish qualifies PJ for the 2022 World Team Trials  as the top seven place-winners at Senior Nationals have the opportunity to compete to represent the United States at the World Championships this Fall in Belgrade, Serbia.  Ogunsanya's finish is the second best for the WPWC in Senior Nationals history, and only surpassed by Jon Anderson - a 2006 Army Wrestler, 2019 US Senior Open champion and 2015 PanAM Games Champion.  

In the U20 (Under 20) National Championships, Richie Treanor (Freestyle, 61kg)   wrestled to 6th place with a 6-3 record and also qualified for the U20 World Team Trials.

Mikey Altomer (Greco, 82kg), competing in the U20 National Championships, dominated with his ferocious headlock to go a perfect 3-0 and capture the Gold. As the U20 Champion, Mikey earns the bid to the 2022 Pan-American Games in Oaxtepec, Mexico.
