Former OSU wrestlers Jordan Oliver and Alex Dieringer went to Ruse, Bulgaria to wrestle in the Dan Kolov Memorial this weekend. Dieringer walked away with a gold and Oliver a silver. Here’s how it all went down.

Dieringer pretty much rolled through 79 KG with very little resistance here. He picked up first-period tech falls in every single match except for one! In the one he didn’t get a tech in he won 5-1 over a U23 World Champion.

In the finals he tech’d his opponent in just 1:47. You can watch the full match here.


Jordan Oliver started wrestling on the day of Alex Dieringer’s final. He won a tight one over Agustin Destribats of Argentina 3-3 to start off the tournament, then got in a pretty good groove and took out two Americans comfortably to make the semifinal. In the semifinal he comfortably picked apart his Turkish opponent.

In the final he fell to a pretty decorated wrestler in Bajrang Punia of India.
