    James Green Returns to Train at Nebraska

    Today, the Nebraska Wrestling Training Center and James Green, dropped some big news on the wrestling community. Green, who had served as USA Wrestling’s National Freestyle Development Coach since April of 2022, will be returning to Nebraska presumably to train for the 2024 Olympic Games. 

    Green made six world teams at 70 kg and won a pair of world medals during his career (2015/bronze and 2017/silver). During the 2016 and 2020 Olympic Trials, Green cut down to 65 kg and couldn’t manage to have the same sort of success as he found at 70 kg. One may guess that he’ll move up to 74 kg for the 2024 run. This could be interesting if former Nebraska training partner Jordan Burroughs cuts back down to 74, as well. 

    During his career at Nebraska, Green earned All-American honors for the Cornhuskers (7, 7, 3, 3). He was a two-time Big Ten finalists (one-time champion) and earned the #1 seed at the 2014 NCAA Championships at 157 lbs.
