Alex with his medal

Alex today entered his second-ever wrestling tournament. He’s just beginning, so the emphasis is on having fun – but who doesn’t think it’s more fun to win?

He earned a second-place finish today when he won for the first time by pinning his opponent. He hit all his moves the way he had practiced, and his determined, methodical approach paid off.

The look on his face when he got up from the mat, triumphant, is something I may never forget.
