Patricia Miranda (New Haven, Conn./Sunkist Kids) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for the week of July 4-10.

Each week, TheMat.com will select an Athlete of the Week, based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling, from youth programs through the Senior level. The announcement will be made each week on Wednesday.

Miranda captured the Canada Cup International championship at 51 kg/112.25 pounds on July 8 in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Miranda, a two-time World silver medalist and 2004 Olympic bronze medalist, beat Olympian Hui Li of China in the finals.

Miranda, who took last year off while starting Law School at Yale University, is looking like a strong candidate to win her fourth World-level medal after returning to competition this season.

Miranda won the U.S. Nationals in April before following with a title at the U.S. World Team Trials on June 30 in Colorado Springs, Colo. Miranda will compete at the World Championships in late September in Guangzhou, China.

Note: To nominate a wrestler for TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week, send the athlete's name, accomplishments for the week and career accomplishments to Craig Sesker at csesker@usawrestling.org
