COLUMBIA, Mo. - Former Mizzou All-American and current Sunkist Kids grappler Nicholas Marable claimed his second consecutive first place finish in international competition this past weekend in New York City. Marable won all five of his matches over the weekend, while only submitting to seven points against throughout the weekend.
Marable sealed the 74-kg title via a 10-3 technical fall over Russian Boris Makoev in the championship match. After a slow start, Marable's offensive game opened up with 10 points of offense, highlighted by a three-point throw near the edge of the circle.
"Sometimes early in the season, it's important to keep pushing the pace," Marable said in an interview with USA Wrestling. "So that's what I did, I just kept pushing and pushing. All my attacks started opening up the more I pushed, and then my defense helped me get that throw that put me up (on Makoev) a good bit."
In five matches, Marable tallied three wins with a margin of seven or more points, qualifying for wins by technical fall in freestyle competition. He also added one win by fall, pinning his opening opponent, Francisco Soler of Puerto Rico, just 1:28 into competition.
Along with serving as the Volunteer Assistant Coach for the Tigers, Marable continues to train in Columbia as a member of the Sunkist Kids Club, coached by Missouri's head assistant, Sammie Henson. The Sunkist Kids Club, along with the Missouri Wrestling Foundation, works with grapplers all over to continue their wrestling dreams outside of the collegiate level. Marable, as well as former Tiger heavyweight Dom Bradley, are currently training for international competition, with their eyes set on the United States national team and the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Former Tiger Raymond Jordan also took home the gold in the men's 84-kg freestyle bracket. Jordan, who competes for the Titan Mercury Wrestling Club, won by way of two technical falls, a decision and a win via the fall in the championship bout versus Vladislav Gabaraev of Russia at 3:59.
