Coon, Nowry and Perkins win gold at Pan Am Championships

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- The USA picked up six medals, including three gold and three silver, on the first day of Greco-Roman competition at the 2019 Pan American Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

One of the highlights of the day came at 130 kilograms, where 2018 world silver medalist Adam Coon pinned his way to his first Senior Pan Am title.

Coming off two falls in the morning session, Coon faced Luciano Del Rio from Argentina in the 130 kg final. Trailing 1-0 after getting hit with passivity, Coon forced Del Rio to his back and was awarded the pin at the 1:59-mark for his third pin of the day.

(Strong candidate for OW, but that will be decided tomorrow after the entire Greco tournament is complete.)
