Ivan Ivanov, former Greco-Roman coach at the U.S. Olympic Training Site, returned to campus for a visit this week. He now runs Suples Training Systems, a company in his native Bulgaria that makes equipment for wrestling, CrossFit and fitness training. Ivanov donated about $10,000 worth of equipment to the program, according to Mike Kaurala of the USOTS. During his tenure from 2002-09, Ivanov coached Olympians Andy Bisek, Spencer Mango, Justin Lester, Adam Wheeler (Olympic Bronze medalist) and Chas Betts.
