Sorry if this isn't directly a Wisconsin school thread but I have to give a shout out to John Gunderson the U23 86kg world representing! That is an awesome achievement to say the least.

2 time finalist in wisconsin and a champ in 2021 and a 2x fargo AA also. Made nationals for UNI his true freshman year and now this.

Wisconsin is deep at wrestling, it isn't only the current names but their are Wisconsin kids all.over mark their mark in wrestling!

Congrates again to Mr Gunderson!

I seen that name and had to look to make sure, he wrestled two seasons ago at HWT in the UNI open. No stats from this past year.

Always thought he'd be good watching him.

Great kid and family.  He apparently has been doing the right things.  To to represent the USA on the World team at any age level is a fabulous accomplishment.  Congrats John!

I believe John's redshirt was pulled his freshman year, redshirted his sophmore year, and this year was on an olympic redshirt, so he essentially has 3 more years of eligibility.

Aspirations to be an olympian, and I would say he is on the right path!

Don't you have to make a world team first before you get an Olympic redshirt? Just asking for a friend ;)
