OLYMPIAN: St. Michael's Betts Will Head to London

Check out the replay of Iowa City Patch's Live Blog from last night's United States Olympic Wrestling qualifier.

Chas Betts, a graduate of St. Michael-Albertville High School who has wrestled for the past three years as part of the Minnesota Storm program, qualified for the United States Greco Roman team with a two bouts-to-zero win over Northfield's Jordan Holm.

According to USA Wrestling:

"Betts became the fourth wrestler in Greco to earn a spot, beating fellow Storm wrestler Jordan Holm in consecutive matches for top honors at 84 kg/185 lbs. In the first bout, Betts, a 2009 World Team member used a turn to secure the first period, but a powerful Holm toss sent the match to a third where Betts benefitted from a tough call to win after an extended review. The second bout saw another extended review won by Betts in a 2-0, 2-0, victory."
