Marshall wins veterans world title

Mark Marshall, an assistant wrestling coach from Seton Hill, won the gold medal in the 97 kg (214 pound) Division D title at the Veterans World Championships in Belgrade, Serbia.
Marshall was among six Americans who won medals for the day but Marshall earned the only gold medal. 
"I was very happy to end my competitive career with this championship," he said. "I wanted to choose how I got to walk away. Not many people get that luxury. From now on I will only be coaching."
Griffin head coach Brian Tucker said it was a great accomplishment.
"I’m really happy for Mark," Tucker said. "I know the effort and sacrifices he has made and to have it pay off for him with a World Championship is just great"
Marshall won three matches on the way to the title, pinning Dimitar Drangov of Serbia and Siamak Ezati of Iran. In the finals, he defeated Bannosorat Davoudi of Iran, 2-0. It was his first career Veterans World title.
