It is the night before the first group of wrestlers will weigh-in for the World Championships and everyone is doing well. The U.S. team is having a light workout at the competition venue for the first time this evening. Brandon Paulson, Kevin Bracken, Keith Sieracki and Jason Loukides are all on weight, confident and ready to get this started tomorrow. After the morning practice everyone went into town for a little break. It was time for everyone to get away for a little bit before returning for the evening workout. We still have police escorts everywhere we go, even in our taxis, which is nice. We all feel very safe. Our hotel is right on the Mediterranean Sea so everyone is taking advantage of just being able to enjoy the view, hang out and relax.
