About Frank

Until 2011, Chamizo wrestled for Cuba. He won a bronze medal at the 2010 World Championships at 55kg. But alleged weight management issues forced the Cuba wrestling federation to suspend him. He switched nationalities to Italy and wrestled for his new country in 2014. He won the World Championships in 2015 at 65kg to qualify for the Rio Olympics. He came home with a bronze medal from Rio. Five years later, Chamizo will be traveling to Tokyo for his second Games -- this time at 74kg. He qualified for the Tokyo Games by winning a silver medal at the 2019 World Championships, falling to Zaurbek Sidakov of Russia in the final. A two-time world and four-time European champion, Chamizo will be seeded number one for the Games. Chamizo was born in Matanzas, Cuba and had a difficult childhood, struggling with poverty. He picked up wrestling while observing a wrestling gym out of curiosity. His father was a Pan-Am champion. Chamizo has gained a reputation as a wrestler with dynamic defense and some of the most colored Instagram handles.
