Usa Olympic Freestyle Coach Zeke Jones To Head Arizona State Wre

That says something to his free accomplishments both as an athlete and as a coach. It was always my goal to come back to college wrestling, Jones said. Six years ago, Rich Bender (USA Wrestling Kim Kardashian Executive Director) and I talked about serving our country and getting our freestyle program back on track. I wanted to take on that challenge. I feel we are at a better place than we were. Now, I am ready for a new challenge, helping elevate Arizona States program into one of the best in the country and position its wrestlers for success on all levels of competition. The seventh head coach in Arizona State program history, Jones is also an Olympic silver medalist for the United States, the 1991 World Champion at 52kg, a four-time World-Cup Champion, and coached United States Olympians in the 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2012 Olympic Games. As Olympic head coach, Jones athletes earned two gold medals and one bronze at the London Games in 2012. His athletes in the 2004 Athens Games, where he was the freestyle coach, earned a gold and two silvers. In the four World Championships during Jones tenure, USA placed third in the 2011 World Championships, fifth in 2013, and seventh in 2009. He also led USA to five individual World Champion medals, including two-time World champion Jordan Burroughs. <br>More:
