USA World Team Member & 2X D1 National Champ Excited To Join Iconic Wrestling Brand

9/10/2020  - 9:00 AM ET - New Jersey

TERRA GRAPPL’R, an emerging wrestling footwear company, has announced the signing of two-time D1 National Champion & USA World Team Member, Zahid Valencia. A Sunkist Kids product and Arizona State alum, Valencia is set to make a long-lasting name for himself as he embarks further into his professional career in arguably the most competitive weight class in the world at 86kg.

The new sponsorship with TERRA GRAPPL'R has Zahid excited for what's to come:

"I’m extremely grateful and energized by this new partnership with TERRA GRAPPL'R. The sport truly needed a new brand leader to step up and give wrestlers of all ages the products and technology we've all needed for quite a while.  I'm looking forward to making the journey to the top, together."

Valencia’s new profound love of the TG Predator Pro 1.5 Wrestling shoes is what started the conversation of him being a TG athlete:

“I’ve been seeing more and more kids roll around in TG’s over the last 2 years and they really caught my attention just because of how sleek they look. Then I got my hands on a pair and slipped them on. All I can is … love at first fit. You feel the innovation in them and it makes you think – why someone didn’t push the limits sooner in this sport? Then I had the opportunity talk with the company's leaders and to see what they have coming in the pipeline blew my mind. I wanted to be part of it!”

TG’s Head of Design & Manufacturing, Jared Ferreira, who is also a designer in big-tech consumer electronics, sees Zahid as a great strategic partner as well and perhaps another reason more wrestlers will begin to buy TG:  

“Zahid’s future in wrestling is something we wanted to be part of. He’s dangerous on the mat and is a pure tactician. He’s got swag. And he’s got a personality that TG can relate to and showcase in Zahid’s product line." Ferreira states. 

TERRA GRAPPL’R is rolling out new product & category lines in 2020/2021 but the details of those products will be kept confidential until launch.
