wasn't the best thing to eat
after dieting down from my
normal weight of 160
pounds."
Seras won an Eastern
Greco-Roman title as a high
school sophomore. As a senior
he competed in the Junior
World Championships in
Nebraska, but sprained an
ankle before the meet and
wound up fourth.
His mother, Sheila Seras,
says her son could have earn-
ed a partial scholarship to
Purdue University, but chose
to stay nearby and go to
Albany State University
because of his admiration for
Coach Joe DeMeo. Seras was
a four-time NCAA Division
HI All-America. After gradua-
tion he lost his Olympic berth
to long-time rival Jim Mar-
tinez, who won the Bronze
Medal in Los Angeles.
"I- work out three times
each day," Seras says. "In the
morning it's running,
aerobics or basketball; in the
afternoon, wrestling drills; in
the evening, regular hard
wrestling. The proof of Coach
DeMeo is that in the final
Olympic trials, our club had
finalists in five of the ten
weight classes."
In Greco-Roman style
wrestling, the wrestler cannot
use his legs offensively or
defensively, only for support.
"It's one step up from college
wrestling' Seras says. "It's
more violent than freestyle
wrestling, more of an all-out
fight . . . but with strategy.
"You have to be 'wilder' in
Greco-Roman than college
wrestling?'
Just back from training
with the Russian Olympic
wrestlers in Leningrad, Seras
also competed in Romania.
No matter what happens in-
Seoul, he's not ready to retire
after finally making it to the
Olympics:
"I'm taking it one year at a
time. My weight hasn't
changed in the last seven
years, and now it gets easier
to lose the 11 pounds for a
tournament. My religion has
taught me discipline. I know
I can't let myself get more
than five pounds above 149.5
near the time of a tourna-
ment, or I won't feel as well
after I take it off.
"After the Olympics — I'll
be wrestling Sept. 20-22 — I'll
be aiming for the World Cup
wrestling, about two weeks
later. After that I'll be taking
it one year at a time, but I'm
sure not ready to retire yet."
