Travis West spent five years on the USA Greco-Roman team in the 1990s, highlighted by his 1992 Barcelona Olympic appearance. West wrestled in college at Portland State University, where he won an NCAA D-2 title in 1989, and led the team to NCAA D-2 titles in 1989 and 1990. He later won a bronze meda at the 1992 Pan American Championships, and a silver at the 1991 US Olympic Festival.
