Bunch finishes third

Shawn Bunch took third place at 60kg (132 pounds) in last weekend's Wolrd Olympic Games Qualifying Tournament in China. That means the United States can send a wrestler to the London Olympics this summer.
Who that wrestler will be has not been determined.
Coleman Scott, a Waynesburg High School graduate, won the weight at the Olympic Team Trials last week. Bunch bypassed the event so that he could wrestle in China. Bunch, because of his ranking, can challenge Scott for the right to represent the U.S. at the Olympics. There will be a mini-tournament June 7 in New York City to determine the winner. Reece Humphrey, who missed the Olympic Trials because of injury, will also compete, thanks to his ranking in the weight class.
Humphrey, the 2011 U.S. World Team member will wrestle Scott, and the winner advances to the  Championship Series against Bunch
Bunch won five of his six bouts in China, including a three-period victory against Bazar Bazarguruev of Kyrgzstan that secured the Olympic spot for USA Wrestling.
