David Taylor Pinned Opponent at Beat the Streets Gala

Three-time All-American David Taylor was chosen to participate in a wrestling match for a Beat the Streets and Save Olympic Wrestling fundraiser against Russia, where he pinned his opponent Magomed Kurbanaliev. Taylor took an early 7-2 lead in the first period. Early in the second period, Taylor pinned Kurbanaliev.

After a 30-2 junior year, Taylor was the only USA male wrestler to pin his opponent. Team USA beat Russia in 8 out of 9 matches. Jordan Oliver, an Oklahoma State graduate and Lehigh Valley native, faced Kurbanaliev at a similar event on Sunday in California and beat him on a late takedown.

Taylor’s rival and four-time NCAA Champion Kyle Dake, won his first international match and picked up Team USA’s only win over Iran against Hassan Tahmasebi.
