One Year Out From Tokyo 2020, Jordan Burroughs Sets Sights on Redemption
July 25, 2019


Jordan Burroughs is reminded every day of one summer moment in 2016. Whether he’s rewatching his wrestling videos and it pops up, or he’s tagged in a photo, some part of the most devastating loss of his career comes back to him.

Burroughs said it took him at least two years to sit down alone in his home and watch his loss at the 2016 Olympics that ended the projected favorite’s hope of a repeat. While he admits he’s in a better place and that the moment will propel him to the next, hopefully into Tokyo 2020, he says it still stings a little bit anytime he watches it in its entirety.
