The Last Champion A feel-good movie filmed in Eastern Washington is about to be released. “The Last Champion” is about a small-town Olympic wrestler who seeks redemption. It was filmed before COVID, but the pandemic is having an impact on the actors and on a local wrestler on track to make it to the Tokyo Olympics. The movie stars Cole Hauser as an Olympic wrestler who had his medal taken away. He returns to his small Eastern Washington town years later and ends up coaching the high school team. One of the actors is Michael John Madden, who wrestled for White River High School in Buckley 11 years ago. “It was really cool for it to be in Washington,” said Madden, “It was very serendipitous. It was 2016 when we filmed it.”
