Team USA athletic trainer returns to Lafayette after international tournament

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man is back home after spending two weeks at an international tournament.

For the past seven years, John Edwards has volunteered as Team USA’s Wrestling Athletic Trainer.

This was the eighth tournament that Edwards was selected to serve as an athletic trainer.

The tournaments help prepare wrestlers for Olympic Qualifying against some of the world’s finest wrestlers.

Edwards said he’s had a blast traveling around the world, and says he’s been blessed to work with the team.

“That’s just the big part. Obviously, most athletic trainers would always want to do the Olympics. But if that doesn’t happen for me, then it doesn’t happen,” said Edwards. “That’s OK. I’ve had opportunity otherwise to see some neat experiences.”

Edwards is also an athletic trainer at Lafayette Orthopaedic Clinic.
