Wes Machan
USA Wrestling Certified Mat Official

Wes Machan of West Jordan was the first Utah wrestler in the state's history to win a World Championship*, winning it in Greco-Roman wrestling.  He was an original member of the Sundance Wrestling Club, arguably the finest freestyle/Greco-Roman wrestling team in Utah history, where the second world champion in Utah history also rose from the Sundance ranks.  Machan qualified for the world team twice, although he was only able to compete the time he won the title.  In addition to his world championship, he was a three-time AAU national champion, twice in Greco-Roman and once in freestyle, and a three-time national bronze medalist, twice in freestyle and once in Greco-Roman.  At Jordan High School, Wes' personal record still stands, where he lost only two times throughout his three years of high-school wrestling.  He also helped coach younger Sundance teammates. 

During his time at Mountain Top Wrestling Club (formerly Jordan Freestyle Wrestling), the team has produced

  • One Folkstyle National Champion, Rocky Mountain Nationals

  • Two USA Wrestling Kids All-Americans

  • 17 State Champions

  • One Undefeated Wrestler over the course of a season

  • Two Champions at the USA Wrestling Western Regional Championships

  • Nine Placers at the USA Wrestling Western Regional Championships
