Daton Fix has his eyes set on the Olympics:

Daton Fix and his dad went to a wrestling tournament where he was just told to learn something. From then on he knew what his dream was. To go to the Olympics.The Tulsa World include Daton in their People to Watch for 2020 series.

Derek told his son he believed the greatest accomplishment a wrestler could achieve was to become an Olympic champion. In a bold statement for one so young, Fix told his Dad that’s what he was going to be.

“I said, ‘Well, if you’re going to be an Olympic champion, son, it’s going to take a lot of effort and there are a lot of factors in it,’ ” Derek recalls. “There’s some God-given ability. There’s the people that are in your life that put hands on you, that mold you and give you the right direction to lead you on the right path. You gotta have the want-to and the toughness. There’s a lot of factors in it.” {Tulsa World}
