It’s safe to go ahead and pick Yianni Diakomihalis to win everything until proven otherwise. The rising Cornell true junior made an immediate impact on the US senior freestyle circuit by winning the US Open one month removed from his second consecutive NCAA title. Now he’s established himself as a senior World title threat.
LAS VEGAS -- Yianni Diakomihalis has won at every level. After winning two Cadet world titles, four state titles and two NCAA championships in two tries, the 20-year-old Cornell sophomore can now add a U.S. Open title to his growing list of wrestling accomplishments.
Yianni Diakomihalis says he's the baddest man on the planet. He's definitely the best 141-pound NCAA wrestler on it. Again.
