Two-time NCAA champ Yianni Diakomihalis will have to wait until 2021 to try for Olympic Games

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Yianni Diakomihalis of Hilton took a year off of wrestling at Cornell to train specifically for the Olympic Games. Now, he’ll have to wait a bit longer after it was announced that the Olympic games were getting pushed to next year.

Less than three weeks ago, he was in Canada, winning gold at the Pan-Am Wrestling Championships. But that’s also about the time that things started to change around the wrestling world.
