for the US on Friday.
Only once every four years are we able to view the absolute pinnacle of our sport – the Olympic Games!
Olympic wrestling kicked off yesterday with Men’s Greco-Roman wrestling which continues through tomorrow. Wednesday and Thursday will feature Women’s Freestyle with two of the four weight classes being contested each day. Finally, Friday through Sunday, the US Men’s Freestyle team will take the mats to represent our country!
For the first time ever thanks to NBC, the US Olympic Committee and social media we have unprecedented access here in the States to catch the action live as it takes place.
The action kicks off at 8 AM Eastern Time each morning and continues throughout the day until about 4 PM Eastern Time.
Here’s all you the resources you need to follow along and witness the best wrestling on the planet!
