CJA Alumni and recent CJA clinician, Richie Lewis says in an interview that he’s going to go for 2020 Olympics before transitioning to MMA.
INTERVIEW BY GARY ABBOTT, USA WRESTLING | JULY 11, 2018, 6:40 P.M. (ET)
Richie Lewis: “I am going to give 2020 my shot then transition into fighting after that.”
Richie Lewis burst onto the international wrestling scene last fall, when he won a gold medal at 70 kg in freestyle at the first U23 World Championships, held in Bydgoszcz, Poland. A New Jersey native, Lewis first went to Junior college, before returning to Rutgers to complete his college wrestling career. He talks about his competition future, which will include a run at the 2020 Olympic team in freestyle, then a change of focus into MMA fighting, which is another major passion for Lewis.

The conversations were honest and harsh, but they had to happen for Sarah Hildebrandt to get where she is now.
A dislocated elbow in the 2017 World Team Trials finals shattered her hopes of competing on international wrestling’s biggest stage. Another year passed with her goals still unchecked.
