Meet the 15 Olympic-bound wrestlers for Team USA
April 04, 2021


The fifteen Olympic-bound wrestlers who emerged victorious from the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Wrestling will no doubt feel that it was all worth the wait.

After a year's postponement because of the coronavirus pandemic, a year of waiting to see if they'd qualify for the Olympic Games, the country's best wrestlers took to the mat Friday and Saturday for Trials, and there was plenty of action inside the partially-filled Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

Fifteen wrestlers qualified for the U.S. Olympic wrestling team that will travel this summer to compete at the Tokyo Games, which was also pushed back one year because of the pandemic. They could be joined by three more athletes should they qualify their weight classes next month.

Here's a little more about the fifteen wrestlers who are already Tokyo-bound.
