Frank Molinaro Interview on The BASCHAMANIA Podcast

Published January 17th, 2020 by GorillaHulk.com

From The Baschamania Podcast:

In 2016, Frank Molinaro was a 9 seed who upset the field and claimed the 65kg spot on USA Wrestling's Olympic Team. In 2020, he may not be seeded as low as 9, but he's again in one of - if not THE - toughest weight classes in the sport. Frank will have to beat the likes of Zain Retherford, Yianni D, Jordan Oliver, and Anthony Ashnault to name a few.

We chat in this episode on his mindset & perspective going into the competition season leading up to the Olympic Trials in April in State College, PA. Recently stepping down as a coach at Virgina Tech and moving to Oklahoma to get a fresh set of coaches, Frank and I chat on the move to Oklahoma and what it means. The 'Gorilla Hulk' and I also chat on the importance of having a Christ-centered life and always relying on God for what's next - no matter where you are! Arguably though, the most interesting topic on this episode was the topic of how Frank almost threw the towel in, but he didn't... I ask him why & how?
