American wrestlers typically start out learning Folkstyle and then convert to Freestyle once their college careers end.
I'm curious to see if there have been success stories that go the other way.
What I mean by that is wrestlers that were primarily Freestyle wrestlers that LATER learned Folkstyle and did well.
I first learned of the Novachkov bros back in the mid 2000's when they were high schoolers and they have done very well in this different style.
There were rumors about Rei Higuchi wrestling for PSU.. would be interesting to see how well he would translate in Folkstyle if he does end up attending PSU and wrestling for them.
Who are some standout wrestlers that came to the US that initially were Freestylers that were able to convert to Folkstyle?
