Former OSU Wrestler Grabs Bronze Medal

Posted: Updated:

Former Oklahoma State wrestler Coleman Scott captured a bronze medal at the Olympics Saturday in the 60 kg freestyle weight class.

Scott defeated Kenichi Yumoto from Japan, 0-1, 3-0, 3-1 in his fourth match to win the bronze.

"It wasn't what I came here for," Scott said. "I wanted to win a gold medal, but I made sure I wasn't leaving here with nothing. I was disappointed in my semifinal loss, but I had to come back and win a medal. It feels good to go out with a win."

Scott's lone defeat was to the eventual gold medalist, Togrul Asagrov of Azerbaijan in the semifinals. Scott lost the match, 1-0, 4-0.

In the bronze medal bout, Yumoto scored a takedown in overtime to take the first period, but Scott rebounded to dominate the second period, 3-0. Yumoto scored a takedown with just 30 seconds remaining in the third to take the lead. However, Scott responded with a takedown of his own 15 seconds later, and then added back points to seal the victory.

Scott's 2012 Olympic medal became the 30th for Oklahoma State and 16th for the Cowboy wrestling program.
