(KTTC) – Mantorville’s Bennett Berge is a U20 World Championship silver medalist.

This past week, Berge had to wrestle his way into the Round of 16 in the 86kg bracket at the World Championships in Bulgaria. It was his international debut. Berge then steamrolled his way to the final where he faced the reigning European Champion, Rakhim Magamadov of France. After taking an early lead against the Frenchman, Berge fell 10-5 to take on the silver medal.

Now, Berge will return stateside and continue to train. Earlier this month, the incoming college freshman told KTTC he plans to redshirt at South Dakota State.
