            LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Jordan Burroughs, whose 69-match winning streak came to an end in February, got off to a good start on another winning run this past weekend as the World and Olympic champion won all five of his bouts at 163 pounds as the United States men’s freestyle team finished third at the World Cup, which was held March 15-16 at the Forum.

In pool matches, Burroughs defeated Vahe Tamrazyan (Armenia), 6-1; pinned Parveen Rana (India), 2:44; Ezzatollah Akbari Zarinkolaei (Iran), 7-1 and pinned Murat Erturk (Turkey), 2:17 before the former Nebraska wrestler won by technical fall over Giya Chykladze (Ukraine), 15-4.

Burroughs suffered his only loss on the men’s senior freestyle level on Feb. 15 in Istanbul, Turkey, when former Missouri All-American Nick Marable defeated Burrough, 4-4 criteria, in a quarterfinals match at the Yasar Dogu International.

For the second straight year, the United States finished third, losing only to eventual team champions Iran, 5-3, on Saturday night. The Iranians claimed the World Cup by defeating Russia, 6-2.
