MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (February 11, 2009) – West Virginia University assistant wrestling coach Danny Felix recently competed at the 2009 Dave Schultz Memorial International Open in Colorado Springs, Colo., with the Sunkist Kids Wrestling Club, and took runner-up at the 55kg/121-pound division. The field of competition consisted of some of the best wrestlers in the world and competitors from approximately 15 countries.
Felix, an accomplished wrestler who won the 2004 Dave Schulz Memorial International Open, has been training with the Mylan Olympic Development Program and said he has stayed true to his regimen even with the enhanced competition in this year’s field.
“My training hasn't changed. I've always known how to train,” Felix said. “I've added an aspect of diet and that's made a world of a difference. I also started working on my mental game with Enrique Montiel at the Olympic Training Center. We're trying to figure out how to not just have the physical strength and quickness, but have the whole ball of wax. We're trying to get everything out of my performance. I think I have lacked that a little bit in the past. I want to use every resource I have.”
