After a short lived retirement from the sport back in 2008 at the Olympic Trials when his dreams were shattered by high school phenom Jake Deitchler, Harry decided to strap the shoes back on for another 4 years.
I’m confident I can speak for just about everyone in the state of Ohio, let alone the Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy where Harry won 4 State High School Titles, that we’re all glad of his decision.
Now, 4 years later, Harry is Ohio’s own 2012 Olympian.
The Goal is the Gold.
A competitive wrestler since age eight, Harry Lester’s objective is not merely the prestige of participating in the Olympics as a member of the U.S. Wrestling Team —
He intends to bring home the Olympic gold medal.
With a long list of accomplishments over the years, most notable being a two time World Bronze Medalist, multiple time US National Champion in addition to a 4x Ohio State High School State Champion.
Being a favorite to win Gold for the USA back in 2008, yet failing to qualify, his international competition knows if their going to win Gold in London, their going to have to go through Harry!
For ONE DAY ONLY, Harry will be in Massillon, OH at the Tru-Strength Performance Center for a Special Wrestling Camp on Sunday, July 1st from 10 am – 1230 pm.
His dream finally came true and we’re thrilled to be able to help SUPPORT Ohio’s own 2012 Olympian by hosting this event.
Donations for the camp will be accepted on site as well as below in effort to assist Harry and more importantly his family’s travel to London so they can watch their son compete on the biggest stage in the world.
Harry will also be signing autographs and allowing photos for all the youngsters out there perhaps with the same dream he had.
What an incredibly opportunity for the city of Massillon. It’s an honor to simply have the chance to help, heck nobody knows, you could have your picture taken with not only a 2012 USA Olympian, if all goes right, he could very well be the GOLD MEDALIST. How cool is that?
This is your opportunity to learn some of the technique that helped make this a dream come true.
