Last nights bout against Sweden’s Yaffer Abdo-Irida has secured Adam a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team heading to China in the summer of 2008. This will be Adams second time to the Olympics and he has alot to prove this time around. In the 2004 Olympics Adam suffered a devastating loss in the first round. This will be Adam’s chance to redeem himself.
Adams journey at the Worlds has been a hard fought one. Adam began his bouts against Columbia(Ronal Montes) which ended in a powerful head shot to his opponent which resulted in an RSCH. Adam then took on Iran(Mohammad Sattarpour) which he took it easy, with his winning decision based on points.
Yesterday, Adam knew that he had to win. His Olympic dream wason the line and was not going to let anyone take that away from him-and he did just that, take what was his.
CONGRATULATIONS ADAM TRUPISH!
