FORT WORTH, Texas -- After falling short of a spot on the 2019 World Team, Kamal Brey looks primed for an Olympic run in 2020.

The 21-year-old Bey, a gold medalist at the 2017 Junior World Championships, came through to capture a Senior Nationals title in Greco-Roman at 77 kilograms on Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas. He topped past World Team member Jake Fisher, the No. 10 seed, in the finals, 5-1.

Bey trailed on criteria, 1-1, with a minute remaining before he hit a big four-point throw on the edge of the mat, which proved to be the difference in the match.

Three Army WCAP wrestlers claimed Senior Nationals titles in Greco-Roman: Leslie Fuenffinger (60 kilograms), Alejandro Sancho (67 kilograms) and Jon Anderson (87 kilograms).

Fuenffinger, a finalist at Final X and the U.S. Open in 2019, claimed his title at 60 kilograms with a 5-1 victory over third-seeded Sam Jones. Jones scored first off a passivity and took a 1-0 lead into the break. But it was all Fuenffinger in the second period. He scored a takedown and step out to go up 3-1. Then all but sealed the victory with another takedown in the final 30 seconds.

Sancho, a Bill Farrell Memorial champion, put a halt to Calvin Germinaro's run at 67 kilograms. Sancho topped Germinaro, 7-5, in the finals. Germinaro, seeded No. 6, had a strong run to the finals, which included wins over world champion Joe Warren, Junior world bronze medalist Peyton Omania and Michael Hooker. Germinaro, the nephew of Olympic silver medalist Brandon Paulson, led Sancho 2-0 with two minutes remaining. But Sancho battled back, scoring first off a passivity and then with a two-point turn followed by a four-point turn. Germinaro would score three points in the final 15 seconds, but it was too little, too late.

Anderson won by injury default over Patrick Martinez in the finals at 87 kilograms.

At 97 kilograms, Daniel Miller came from behind to defeat top-seeded Lucas Sheridan on criteria, 3-3. Sheridan led 3-0 at the break, but Miller came back in the second period, scoring first off a passivity and then a turn with just under two minutes remaining to take the criteria lead. He would then hold off Sheridan for the victory.

Cohlton Schultz, a Final X runner-up last year, won the title at 130 kilograms with a 2-0 victory over Jacob Mitchell. Schultz, a redshirt at Arizona State, scored both of his points off passivity calls.

60 kilograms: Leslie Fuenffinger dec. Sam Jones, 5-1

How Free Classified Ads Helped Me Earn Handsome Amount?
I am 40 years old - have been recently laid off from the company I worked for. For the past 15 years, I was working at a call centre that had a UK contract, the client was a bank that forwards its customer's queries to us. I started off as a low-key office boy then worked my way to become the manager of the unit. After the recession hit - our client went bankrupt and there was no reason for our company to exist. I suddenly went from being a manager to being unemployed. My wife became our only source of income, the economy being so slugging, it was extremely difficult for me to get a new job.
Our family of four had to shift to a smaller flat to make ends meet along with our dog a Labrador. Our dog gave birth to four beautiful puppies, but this was a problem, when we made plans for the dog to have children, we didn't expect our financial situation to change so drastically, this small flat hardly had place for 4 of us - with 4 more dogs it would be nearly impossible for us to manage, and to add to that the amount of money that had to go towards taking care of them was not something we could afford back then.
We decided it would be best if we could just give away the puppies, our children were not happy with the decision, but they were grown enough to understand our predicament. I asked a few of my friends if they wanted a puppy, they all said no, one of them said why don't you sell them? I was surprised, I enquired him about how can I sell them, he told me about the miracle of free classified ads
I placed free classified ads on many of the classified portals in India and frankly speaking I did not expect it to work - was a little skeptical about it, but I soon started getting inquiry calls from so many of the potential buyers who were keen on buying my puppies. I sold the first one for INR 4,000 through izydaisy, then I learned the art of bargaining, and I sold other two for INR 6,000, I sold the last and the cutest one for a whopping 10,000 Rupees. So, this way free classified ads helped me get a footing in my time of need.
