Wrestling Technique of the Week- Gut Wrench
This week's technique features true freshman wrestler, Jake Velarde (141). In the video Velarde shows how to properly execute a gut wrench. While you will not see this hold utilized in collegiate style wrestling, it is one of the most fundamental and effective turns used in the international styles of wrestling (Freestyle and Greco-Roman). A native of Poulsbo, Wash., Velarde opened the season with a 3-2 finish at the Citadel Open.
ODU will be back in action on Sunday, Nov. 17 at the Wolfpack Open at NC State.
