Former Oklahoma State wrestler wins silver

Updated:
ATHENS, Greece (AP) _ Former Oklahoma State wrestler Jamill Kelly is a silver medalist after a surprising run at the Athens Olympics.

Kelly won his first match yesterday in overtime before losing to Ukraine's Elbrus Tedeyev on points in the gold-medal match.

Kelly never won a California high school title or made All-American at Oklahoma State, but won three straight Olympic matches before losing to the two-time world champion.

Kelly says he got a little timid in the final match.

Another former Cowboy wrestler is still in the hunt for a medal. Daniel Cormier moved into the semifinals with a pair of wins.

Oklahoma State assistant coach Eric Guerrero lost twice and was eliminated.
