Interesting to see amateur wrestling get mentioned/shown on two of the major broadcast networks' evening news programs:
> ABC World News Tonight -- with substitute anchor/former Columbia University wrestler George Stephanopolous -- had a story about a new co-ed academy in Jordan that uses Western/US-style curriculum. The academy was the product of Jordan's King Abdullah, who wrestled while in prep school in the US. The segment showed a yearbook photo of the monarch in a singlet.
> CBS Evening News with Katie Couric -- in its weekly "feel-good" story hosted by Steve Hartman -- featured a 3-minute segment on Dustin Carter, the legless/armless HS wrestler from Hillsboro, Ohio whose long-time dream of "making state" was realized when he competed in the state tournament in Columbus last weekend. The story provided information that was new to me -- that Dustin was a troubled, "straight F" student who hated the world and his dad -- until he discovered wrestling.
Good to see this kind of positive coverage about the sport.
