Adeline Gray named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for April 26-May 2



Adeline Gray (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for April 26-May 2.

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.

Gray won a gold medal at the Mongolian National Wrestling Championships on Saturday in Ulan Baator, Mongolia. Gray won the title at 67 kg/147.5 lbs.

Gray pinned all four of her opponents during the day, including a second-period pin over 2010 University World bronze medalist Banztaragzh Oyunsuren of Mongolia in the finals.

The Mongolian Wrestling Federation opened its women’s national championship event to other nations this year. The United States brought six of its 2011 U.S. Open champions to compete, as well as participate in an international training camp.

Gray, a 2008 Junior World champion, was fifth in the 2009 Senior World Championships. She recently returned to action after missing the 2010 season with an injury.
