Former University of Iowa national champion Brent Metcalf won a gold medal Friday at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Canada.

Metcalf defeated Cuba’s Franklin Maren, 8-2, in the 65 kg/143 lb. finals. He trailed 1-0 in the first two minutes following a push-out, but scored a takedown in the closing seconds of the first period and outscored Maren 6-1 in the second period to earn a gold medal in his first career Pan Am Games appearance.

Metcalf’s path to the finals included a 10-0 technical fall in the quarterfinals, and a 10-8 decision in the semifinals. He trailed Puerto Rico’s Franklin Gomez, 8-3, in the semifinals before scoring seven unanswered points and advancing to the gold medal match.
