Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson has notified USA Wrestling that he will not compete at the world championships Sept. 16-24 in Belgrade, Serbia. USA Wrestling announced the news Wednesday but did not state a reason.

Steveson, a two-time NCAA heavyweight champion for the Gophers from Apple Valley, returned to amateur wrestling earlier this year while continuing to train toward a WWE career. He dominated the 125-kilogram men's freestyle class at the U.S. Open in April, then defeated Mason Parris at Final X in June to earn his spot on the U.S. team for the world championships. Steveson will be replaced at worlds by Parris, an NCAA champion at Michigan and junior world champion in 2019.
