COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Harry Lester stepped off the scale, turned around, raised his arms in the air and flashed a smile to teammate Spenser Mango and Coach Jim Gruenwald.

He’s back.

Nearly eight months after finishing a disappointing third at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Greco-Roman wrestling, the two-time World bronze medalist is set to make his return to the mat.

Lester weighed in at 74 kg/163 lbs. early Thursday afternoon for the Dave Schultz Memorial International Open. He is scheduled to begin competition on Friday morning at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The three-day event runs through Sunday.
