Adam Busiello's Crazy Super 32 Belt Collection

Adam Busiello Had To Redeem Himself After Fargo Letdown
How many losses has Adam Busiello taken at Super 32 dating back to 2012? Trick question -- the answer is zero.

Going into this year's tournament on Oct. 28-29 in Greensboro, NC, the Penn State commitment has the chance to claim his sixth Super 32 title in a row. It all got started in 2012 when he defeated Ryan O'Grady to win the title at 75 pounds. The next year Busiello went back-to-back at 85 pounds when he edged Colton Yapoujian 1-0. 

In 2013, Busiello's win over Job Greenwood at 105 made it a three-peat. Then he stepped up to the big boys and didn't skip a beat, reaching the 106 finals with two pins, two majors, and a regular decision. Busiello finished it all off with a 5-0 shutout over JoJo Aragona to win his first high school division belt. He climbed atop the podium after only giving up a total of five points.

And last year it was more of the same. He mowed down the field to reach the finals where he took out Robert Howard 5-2. Like Busiello's first year in the high school division, he was a bonus-point machine with three pins, two majors, and a technical fall before getting a regular decision over Howard in finals.

Needless to say, Super 32 has been Busiello's playground. He shows up and shows out. Will the Eastport-South Manor (NY) junior stay on track this year and collect another belt? He will look to do just that up at 120 this year.

79kg Storylines For The 2018 US Open

For years, the tweeners who were too big for 74kg had to make the difficult decision to put on at least 20 pounds to bulk up to 84kg. Then came the introduction of 86kg, and the gap became even bigger. Thankfully though, there now exists a 79kg weight class.
