Seeds Set For Senior World Team Trials Challenge Tournament

USA Wrestling - The freestyle seeds for the 2023 Senior World Team Trials Challenge Tournament have been finalized ahead of this weekend’s competition in Colorado Springs, Colo.

With seven of the ten Final X men’s freestyle pairings set, only three weight classes (61 kg, 92 kg and 125 kg) will be contested at this event to round out the remaining Final X participants. With six of the ten Final X women’s freestyle pairings set, only four weight classes (55 kg, 59 kg, 68 kg, 76 kg) will be contested at this event to round out the remaining Final X participants.

A panel of coaches representing the athletes determined the final seeding based on an agreed upon set of seeding criteria that included head-to-head results, tournament placements, and common opponents.

The only adjustments that will be made to the seeds will be if a wrestler drops out of the field. In that case, the wrestler in question will be removed from the list and every wrestler underneath him will bump up to the next seed.

Single day and all session ticket options are available to purchase online through the USA Wrestling website. Those unable to attend the event can stream every match from Colorado Springs live on FloWrestling.org.
