Penn State Wrestling Star Roman Bravo-Young To Represent Mexico In 2024 Olympic Qualifying

Roman-Bravo Young is heading to Mexico to continue his professional career.

FloWrestling first reported Bravo-Young’s plans to debut with the Mexican team Thursday, and the wrestler seemingly confirmed it on his Instagram story Thursday night.

The two-time NCAA Champion and four-time All-American will attempt to earn the 57-kilogram spot on the Mexican team ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics pending his transfer.

“I’m honored to represent the country my great grandparents and grandparents come from,” Bravo-Young told FloWrestling.

Bravo-Young will be eligible to compete in the 2024 Pan-Am Olympic Games Qualifier and the World Olympic Qualifier to pursue a bid to the 2024 Olympics. The first event will take place in March, while the latter will occur in May before the Olympic Games begin in July 2024.

At Penn State, the Tuscon, Arizona, native clinched two national championships in 2021 and 2022 at 133 pounds and registered a career 101-10 record. Along with three Big Ten individual titles, Bravo-Young is a four-time All-American and claims two perfect seasons throughout his five years in Happy Valley.

Now, Bravo-Young trains with the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club.
