BLACKSBURG, VA- Since 2016, one man has represented the United States in international competition at 70 kilograms. James Green has been among the best-of-the-best in American wrestling for the last ten years.  In 2012, he received his first of four All-American Honors at the NCAA Championships in St. Louis

Following the conclusion of his collegiate career as a Nebraska Husker, Green earned his first spot on the 2015 U.S. World Team at 70 kilograms. He would return to Lincoln with a Bronze Medal before making the next five consecutive world teams. Most recently, James Green co-headlined the RUDIS Supermatch on March 16th in a match-up with Zain Retherford.

Since making his first world team, the New Jersey-native has been a model of consistency and competitiveness on the freestyle stage. Few wrestlers have competed as frequently as James Green, and even fewer have been so universally respected by the wrestling community.



The wrestling community has not seen the last of James Green, however. In addition to announcing his retirement from competitive wrestling, Green announced that he would be taking over as the National Freestyle Developmental Coach for USA Wrestling.

Thank you, James, for everything you’ve done as a competitor. We can’t wait to see what you accomplish from the corner.
