Olympic Wrestling Trials Program
The U.S. Men's and Women's Freestyle, and Men's Greco Olympic Wrestling Trials were held in Iowa City in 2012.
Athletes competed for spots on the 2012 US Olympic team in men’s and women’s freestyle and greco-roman wrestling.
Unfortunately, the International Olympic Committee recently recommended dropping wrestling from the 2020 olympics. A final decision will be made in May 2013.
