Former SPASH wrestler heads back to Olympics

It's been a long road for Ben Provisor since he competed in the 2012 Olympic Games.

Injuries have plagued the SPASH grad but Saturday he would have the chance to move on by qualifying for the 2016 games in Rio.

In the Greco-Roman semifinal round at 85 kilos, Provisor lead after scoring two on a gut wrench and sealed the 3-0 win with a push out.

In the final, Provisor pinned Jacob Clark with 40 seconds left in the first round.

Provisor will head back to the Olympics a changed athlete.

"You know I was a young boy when I made it last time and you know I have a family to support now, Provisor told NBC Sports Network. "I've got a little girl to support, so that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to go out and work everyday for my daughter and hopefully bring home a gold medal."

Sunday, Tomahawk's Alyssa Lampe participates in the womens freestyle competition at 48 kilos. She missed qualifying in the 2012 trials.
