When Tuma started wrestling, he was gunning for WWE, not Greco-Roman. Growing up, he learned under a coach who had also coached at the Olympic level. Tuma learned quickly. He made the finals at nationals every year of middle school and high school, and by the time he graduated had collected four 5A state titles. His accomplishments also include two United World Wrestling Junior Greco-Roman Nationals titles and selection as a four-time US World team member. Now, this two-time National Team Member is preparing to compete in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard.
