Mike's World Wrestling Championship

Hello, my name is Mike Osborne.  I started wresting in 3rd grade in Nebraska.  I moved to Missouri and wrestled in the YMCA program.  I was able to win the 5 state (NE, IA,MO,CO,KS) tournament.  Moved to Virginia and won a state championship at 98 lbs.  Wrestled in college at Middle Tennessee State University (Div 1) and then attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA  where I won the National Christian College championships.  

Currently assistant coach at Rural Retreat H.S. (VA) where we won our 4th straight state championship.

My wife (Sue) and I own and operate Our Father's House Christian bookstore in Glade Spring, VA.  I also do CPR training as Appalachian First Aid.

I am now 60 years old (June 25th of 2017) and am wanting to compete in the Veterans World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria on Oct. 10-15, 2017.  I will be wrestling in the 56-60 age bracket at 138.5 lbs.

I have been lifting weights and doing cardio training.  I hope to work out and train with King University (Women's national champions) in Bristol, TN in the next few weeks.

The World Veteran's committee has dropped the top 2 age brackets just this year so this is the last year I will be able to compete.  I would appreciate your help in making this dream of competing for a World title a reality.
