About 20 children are learning to wrestle under the watchful eye of former wrestler Michael Guerra. When asked why they chose wrestling in baseball-loving Cuba, they shout in unison: “To be like Mijain Lopez!” Lopez has won two Olympic gold medals in Greco-Roman wrestling, as well as five world championships, and is one of Cuba’s most heralded and popular athletes.
