Grappling-arts star seizes chance to bring lessons home to Binghampton


When Elijah Oliver talks about a path from Binghampton in Memphis to the medalist level of collegiate wrestling, he is speaking of a truth that he knows well.

The four-time medalist from the University of Indiana in the Big Ten Conference shared those experiences and his training skills with students at the Stardust Jiu-Jitsu Studio in Binghampton last Saturday (Oct. 5).
