A Springfield man is poised to mark two milestones for his native Haiti in the Summer Olympics this month, competing as the nation’s first-ever wrestling entrant and carrying the Haitian flag in the opening ceremonies.

Asnage Castelly came to the United States from Haiti at age 9 after his mother came here to study. Now 37 and an assistant wrestling coach at Springfield Technical Community College, he said he is honored to put his love for his country on display in Rio.

When Castelly learned that he had been selected to carry the flag, he was shocked. “I thought it was a joke at first,” he said.
