Bode is unique: he loves wrestling for its fun and its competition, but he is also really good at taking a loss and turning it upside down. He knows you gotta move on from it, and his main goal is turning losses into something positive. We love that sort of attitude here at HERO, and are glad to see it in fine young wrestlers like Bode. Be sure to read on to learn a little more about him, and cheer him on if you see him at your next tournament!
