American wrestling star Jordan Burroughs skipped this weekend's World Cup, a crucial tune-up for upcoming Rio Olympics, to be with his wife and family as they awaited the birth of their second child.
Baby Ora arrived Saturday.

Burroughs, the defending world and Olympic champion and the heavy favorite to win the men's freestyle 74-kilogram weight class in Rio, has seen his life change dramatically since emerging as one of the world's best wrestlers at the London Games in 2012. Burroughs got married in 2013 and had a son named Beacon in 2014. Burroughs even brought Beacon to Iowa City, Iowa in April _ where they celebrated his dominant win at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
