October 2015 Coleman Scott Olympic Bronze Medal Winner in Wrestling

Speaking October 12th was Olympic Bronze Medal winner in wrestling, COLEMAN SCOTT.

Coleman attended Waynesburg Central High School in Pennsylvania where he had a record of 156-12 and was a four-time WPIAL champion and three-time PIAA champion.

As an Oklahoma State wrestler Coleman was a 2008 NCAA Champion and four-time All-American.

Coleman won the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials, but unlike many of his fellow competitors this did not automatically earn him an Olympic bid. Since the U.S. had not yet qualified at that weight and since the qualification tournaments were near in time to the Trials, two wrestlers were selected to skip the trials and try to qualify the U.S. at that weight. After the U.S. qualified for that weight, a special best-of-three Championship Series at Times Square was arranged allowing the Trials winner to compete against the two wrestlers at the qualification tournaments for the Olympic spot. Coleman defeated Reece Humphrey in the semi final. Coleman then defeated Shawn Bunch 2 to 1 the special best-of-three Championship Series final for the 60 kg spot.
