COLUMBIA — Missouri sophomore wrestler Kyle Bradley will receive a 2012 Wilma Rudolph Student Athlete Achievement Award. 

The award, presented by the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics, honors student athletes who have overcome personal, academic and/or emotional odds to achieve academic success while participating in intercollegiate athletics.

Bradley, who qualified for the NCAA championships at 149 pounds for the second straight time this season, has a disease known as X-linked retinoschisis, which usually occurs in young males and affects eyesight.
