SPOILER ALERT: Ellis Coleman Wrestling Results

How did the Oak Park-River Forest High School alum fare the the 2012 Olympic Games?

Update, 8:41 a.m. Coleman won't have a chance to wrestle for the Bronze. His foe in the preliminary round, Ivo Serafimov Angelov, lost his match to Iran's Omid Haji Moroozi. Angelov's defeat means Coleman is eliminated from the tournament. 

Update, 8:09 a.m. Chicago Tribune Olympics reporter Brian Hamilton has more on the match, which quickly unfolded in front of a crowd that included a few dozen Coleman supporters, some of whom unrolled a "Pride of the Huskies" banner. Coleman apparently started out slow — a kiss of death, according to his coaches — then tried his famous Flying Squirrel move but missed. According to the official results, the match was over in less than four minutes. 

Olympic dreams, dashed.

Ellis Coleman has dropped his match in the preliminary round, losing to Bulgaria's Ivo Serafimov Angelov in the Greco-Roman wrestling men's 60 kg class. Here's a look at the results, via NBC's Olympics page:

Coleman still has a shot at the Bronze Medal, though. If Angelov makes into the finals, Coleman will wrestle in the repechage rounds. Keep it here for more updated results.
