One of the anticipated matchups of the U.S. Olympic Wrestling Trials by no means occurred, and J’den Cox’s goals of representing his nation in Tokyo had been dashed.

Not due to an upset or constructive coronavirus check. Cox, a Missouri wrestling alum and Columbia native who already had booked his spot within the semifinals at 97 kilograms based mostly on prior victories, was knowledgeable of the fallacious weigh-in instances by his coach. 

Cox’s coach, Kevin Jackson, can also be a USA Wrestling worker. Cox and Jackson appealed the choice, however the trials went on with out the two-time world champion. Kyle Snyder, the defending Olympic gold medalist at 97kg, gained the nation’s spot on the weight class on the group.

The attraction was finally dropped, as Cox mentioned on a latest podcast episode of the Mizzou Wrestling Tiger Type Report produced by Missouri athletics, citing a low probability of any determination being overturned and excessive costs for lawyer charges.
