Burroughs, 23, is the first U.S. World Champion since Bill Zadick in 2006. Russia and Iran still walked away with the #1 and #2 spots respectively, but with Burroughs win pushing the U.S. into third place by one point is amazing and obviously an improvement from last years one win for the entire team. Congrats to this young man!
“It’s an amazing feeling right now,” Burroughs said. “A lot of people doubted that I could even make the team this year. I am here, and I did it. I am feeling really good right now.”
