With former OSU wrestler Coleman Scott now being the owner of an Olympic medal, opponents now look at him in a different light.


Scott, who competed said winning a medal gives this Olympic cycle a different feel because he is now a known commodity.

“It's definitely different,” Scott said. “They are all gunning for you. Before, no one looked at me or really knew who I was. It's definitely put a little bull's eye on you, but coach always said if you don't have pressure than you aren't winning.”

Scott was injured in his first match of the World Team Trials in Stillwater on Friday with what he told the Stillwater NewsPress was a torn pectoral muscle.

OLIVER APPRECIATES LEARNING FROM OLYMPIC MEDALISTS

Jordan Oliver knows how to win matches, but having a two-time Olympic gold medalist as a coach and a teammate with a bronze medal helped him prepare for the 2013 World Team Trials.

“That means everything,” Oliver said. “Knowing Coach Smith's credentials and everything he has done. He's been through it all, so anything I can do or say, just listen to him.
