Four time Olympic champion and reigning gold medalist in freestyle wrestling Jordan Burroughs is currently in Rio preparing to compete on Friday. The 28-year-old wrestler from New Jersey told press that he feels cool, calm, and collected and that he’s ready to “win the gold again and be the best in the world.”
Considering that he’s accumulated an astounding 129 wins over the course of his professional career, including an unprecedented 108-2 on the international circuit, we’d say the odds are in Burroughs’ favor. But his talents aren’t only limited to the wrestling ring. He also maintains a rather impressive and revealing Instagram account.

Taking care of your body means more than just training hard. It also helps to actively recover. I stretch before and after every practice for at least 20 minutes. In a sport like wrestling flexibility can make a big impact on your performance. It takes time and discipline to develop but it is well worth it!
