UPDATE: Two-time World champion J’den Cox is currently pursuing steps to get back into the Olympic Trials after being removed from the 97-kilogram bracket for missing weight Friday morning.
The reigning two-time 92kg world gold medalist J’den Cox has been removed from the 97kg bracket at the Olympic Team Trials.
The bracket has been redrawn and Cox is no longer sitting with a bye to the semifinal due to his 2019 medal. The new bracket is below.
According to USA Wrestling, “Cox did not make weight.”
This is a massive blow to both Cox and Team USA as a whole. Cox was a possible favorite to get the nod to the Olympic Team.
