A day after Nico Megaludis picked up a gold medal, former Penn State wrestler David Taylor followed suit at the Paris International.
Taylor won the 86-kilogram freestyle weight class Sunday, topping the United States’ Richard Perry 8-5 in the finals.
He gave up a total of seven points the entire tournament. The other two points came in the semifinals in a 12-2 technical fall of France’s Akhmed Aibuev.
Taylor tacked on two other technical falls en route to the finals.
He topped Hungary’s Mihaly Hagy 10-0 to open the tournament. In the quarterfinals, he dispatched another Hungarian in Itsvan Vereb 10-0.
In the 74 kg weight class, two Nittany Lions squared off for bronze medals. Matt Brown got the best of Dan Vallimont 8-2.
