Jordan Ernest Burroughs claimed the United States' first gold medal in wresting at the London Olympics, winning the final of the men's 74 kilogram freestyle tournament on Friday.

Burroughs defeated Iran's Sadegh Saeed Goudarzi in a decision by points, earning the 24 year old a gold in his Olympic debut. Burroughs had won the 2011 world championship.It feels awesome. I've prepared all my life for this, and it was well executed. I've been working hard and I've had big matches in my career, but this is the best. It's unreal and it's a dream. I expected to win and I always knew I would. He's my arch nemesis and I'm sure we'll have a lot of battles in the future," said Burroughs, who earned the United States' first medal in this event since 2000.Goudarzi added an Olympic silver to his two second-place finishes in world championships.
