Pan-American Championships

Cheney left this morning to compete in the Pan-American Championships in Frisco, Texas.  He will be competing at the 80kg weight class while representing the USA.  This is a great opportunity for him as he will have the ability to get in one last competition before the Olympic Team Trials in April and the fact that it is foreign competition is just icing on the cake. This will allow him to assess where he is at on his goals for the year and will allow him to refocus on his next 6 week training cycle.  Nothing is more exciting than competition when you truly love want you are doing.

He will weigh in tomorrow and wrestle Sunday February 28.  To follow him and the rest of team USA please visit the website below:
