Kenosha teen Sebastian Rosales is headed to the Pan Am Kids World Championships next month thanks in part to Mount Pleasant police Officer Ben Mieloszyk.

Rosales, 13, has been training since he was 10 in the martial art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a combination of judo, wrestling and choke holds. Mieloszyk has been coaching the boy in wrestling since Rosales was just seven years old.

After placing third last year at the Pan Am Kids World Championships, Rosales is hoping to take first place this year, a story on CBS 58 News reads.

Mount Pleasant PD posted on their Facebook page good luck wishes for Rosales. The police union has been one of Rosales’ sponsors while he trains for the games.

“Sebastian not only is a honor roll student at school but spends countless hours at the gym getting ready for this great event,” the post reads. “(We) wish Sebastian luck on his up coming events.”

The Pan Games Kids World Championships are Feb. 15 in Long Beach, CA.
