Leslie’s father introduced him to wrestling when he was in 9th grade, and his focus shifted to wrestling full-time when he realized he couldn’t ride his dirt bike in the winter. He won his first high school state championship in 2011, and went on to wrestle at Augsburg University. Having won a silver at USA Nationals, he now continues to sharpen his Greco-Roman technique in preparation for the next Olympics.

I achieve my best, because I don’t like losing.
