The 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games are just a month in the books, but for athletes around the world, their sights are already set on the next games, four years from now in Tokyo, Japan. Among them is local wrestler Kyle Pedretti.
The sport has been woven into Pedretti’s life since, as a student at Central, he quit basketball in sixth grade to join the wrestling team. A year later, now in the MFL MarMac School District, he finished 2-2 at the AAU State Tournament. In eighth grade, he finished second at AAU State, despite personal hardship.
