Crimson Faceoff: Volume 2, Wrestling the Champ

In his final season at Harvard, former Crimson wrestler JP O’Connor ’10 faced 35 opponents. O’Connor blew past them all en route to a national championship.

But O’Connor—who is currently training for the 2012 Olympics—had one more challenger to overcome before he could begin thinking about packing his bags for London: a nerdy sportswriter with about as much combat experience as a Quaker.

In the second edition of Crimson FaceoffThe Back Page’s new video series that pits Crimson sportswriters against varsity athletes—one Crimson sportswriter takes him on.

Could O'Connor keep his perfect record in tact? See for yourself by checking out The Crimson’s video footage.
