JSZ All-Access: Jimmy Mullen’s Quest for International Gold

St. Joseph (Mont.) rising sophomore Jimmy Mullen is on the cusp of finishing off a dominant run in the summer of 2021.

Mullen is New Jersey’s lone representative on Team USA’s 2021 Cadet World Team and will look to win gold medals in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman at the Cadet World Championships in Budapest, Hungary from July 19-25. The 2020 New Jersey heavyweight state champion will be wrestling in the 110 kg (242 lb.) weight class.

Leading up to the championships, Mullen won gold in both styles at the Cadet World Trials in Wisconsin Dells and then won gold in both styles again at the Pan-American Games in Mexico earlier this summer.
