Burroughs, 33, is the most decorated USA men’s freestyle wrestler since John Smith of the early 1990s. This native of Camden, N.J., has appeared in two Olympics (winning gold in 2012 and later competing in 2016) while also winning five World championships; the last coming last fall at 79 kilos, which earned him an automatic spot in Final X. Burroughs first four World titles came in 2011, ’13, ’15 and ’17 to go along with bronze medals in 2014, ’18 and ’19; all at 74 kilos before losing that weight to Kyle Dake in the 2020 Olympic Trials. Burroughs spent most of his training years in Lincoln, Neb., where he first won two NCAA titles and the 2011 Dan Hodge Trophy before moving to Philadelphia, Pa., where he trains with the Penn RTC.

In the 79 kg men's freestyle finals, the reigning world champion defeated Chance Marstellar, 4-0, in the first round of the series. In the second round, Marstellar forced a third deciding match after his 2-2 victory. In Round 3, Burroughs grabbed an early 3-0 lead and sealed the 5-0 win in the second period with a takedown.

This win qualified Burroughs for his 11th World or Olympic team and gives him a chance to break the freestyle title record that he and John Smith currently share.
