Super job to the Olympic coaching staff too. What a turn difference from just four years ago. That turn around takes leadership. I think the US Team was the most improved of any country in the world.

Jake Herbert talks to Flowrestling for the first time since the world team trials and his finals matches against Cael Sanderson. He said he may have given the great Cael Sanderson a little too much respect in the first match and felt better in the second. Jake Herbert also is glad that he got to wrestle Cael Sanderson before the 2012 Olympic Trials because he has a better understanding of him as a wrestler. Jake Herbert will most likely be moving up to Michigan to follow Sean Bormet and train up there with guys like Andrew Howe and Mike Poeta to prepare himself for the 2012 trials which are just 10 months away. And make let's it be known that wearing Cael's shoes only motivates him when he is training.
I know I'm writing this a year after the fact, but hats off to Jake Herbert. I don't care if you think Cael dominated him or not. I respect our USA boys that are training for multiple world teams and multiple Olympic golds. Hats off to Burroughs. He will be one of USA's all-time greats and makes his country proud. Hats of to Varner. He's got more gold in him yet. I wish Henry C would do the same. He's got a lot of great wrestling left that 20-something frame. Bruce B., John Smith, Kenny Monday, were studs for years. Hats off to those behind the Living the Dream medal fund to make it possible for these guys to be motivated monitarily for their efforts and commitment.Go USA, and go Herbert!
So training with two guys that have never made a world team will help you beat the best on the planet. I'm missing the logic or something.
