IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Former Iowa State two-time national champion Jake Varner is headed to London.  Varner earned an Olympic bid defeating Tommy Rowlands in Saturday's trials final.

Varner, the world championships bronze medalist, will be making his first Olympic appearance.  He's carrying high expectations with him to London.

"It's not going to stop here. It's not about being an Olympian, it's about going out and achieving your goals and being an Olympic champion," Varner said.
