USA Wrestling Picks Olympic Assistants
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) _ Greco-Roman wrestling experts Shon Lewis and Andy Seras will help coach the U.S. Olympic team at next summer’s Athens Games.
The two will join coach Steve Fraser, the national Greco-Roman coach since 1995.
Their appointments were announced Tuesday by USA Wrestling and must be approved by the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Lewis coaches the U.S. Army team at nearby Fort Carson. He coached the 2003 U.S. Greco-Roman World team that finished 13th in France.
Seras, the wrestling coach at Sacred Heart, was the coach of the 2002 U.S. world team that finished fifth overall in Moscow. He competed at the 1988 Olympics.
Fraser is the first U.S. wrestler to win an Olympic gold medal in Greco-Roman (1984).
