Is he still in the Army (was part of WCAP)?

That's what I was wondering. If so, man, he's in more trouble than just a 4 year suspension.

UCMJ and at best a general discharge, but probably an OTH.

The slightly good news from this is the US has been really good at making sure Any violations are caught prior to their athlete placing in a major world event.  Sure it’s a sad situation related to USA wrestling but at least it won’t news at the world/Olympic stage or when a medal retraced afterward like several other countries have had.

Dude he is 32 at least he is born 87

Where did you see he was born in '87? Not that I see a different date just curious. In the article where it says he's 30 it mentions a few dates. The date of the article, the date of the non-test and the date of the competition (also a competition from last year). It could be he was 30 at one of those times.

This is the same guy that spent years at NLWC?

Yes, he was in WCAP but trained at NLWC part time because Army didn't really have a freestyle team.

He was kicked out of WCAP and is quitting the Army.

Well, the point I’m getting at is that he can’t “quit” the Army. He has a contract, and his contract will be terminated by the Army and he will most likely receive a General or Other Than Honorable discharge.

There is case they make exemptions for foreigners for if someone cant catch up class or other reasons. Up to 2years or maximum 3.  Either way , it sucks it's not probably just him but many athlete are probably using it lowkey but dumbass ordered through online.

While that may be true for enrollment purposes, as far as I am aware, a student in that situation would not be allowed to compete in HS athletics in California if they did not meet the age requirements for the CIF. If he was born in 1987, he would have been too old to compete in the 2008-09 season regardless, but he did (took 3rd at state).

yeah, if he decides to "quit", he won't end up with any kind of GD, it will be with an RE Code of RE-4 and a possible big chicken dinner.
