Live On Flo This Week: 1/26 Clovis vs Buchanan | 1/27 Lock Haven at Edinboro | 1/27-28 NCWA National Duals | 1/28 Bishop McCort vs Wyoming Seminary

USA Wrestling will be sending a large contingent to the fourth Paris International Tournament (formerly the Grand Prix of Paris) this weekend. A total of 26 athletes, 18 from men's freestyle and eight Greco-Roman, will be competing in Paris from Sunday, Jan. 29, to Tuesday, Jan. 31.

This is the largest delegation the U.S. has ever sent to this event, bigger than the 21-athlete group sent the first year it was held. Past champions for Team USA  at the Paris International include Nick Marable and Tony Ramos.

Nearly every member of Titan Mercury's team from their title run at the World Freestyle Clubs Cup will be in attendance as well as a number of athletes who competed at the Bill Farrell Memorial in November. Every member of the Greco squad is from the Marines, and they will be staying after the tournament to train in France.

A total of 16 NCAA title winners are represented on the freestyle roster, seven of whom could potentially meet in one bracket. Kyle Dake, who is making his return to 74kg, could face off with Bill Farrell champion Alex Dieringer. 

There is a plus-2kg allowance for each weight. We will post brackets if they become publicly available before the tournament starts.

Alex Dieringer beats 2014 world bronze medalist Bekzod Abdurakhmonov at Bill Farrell International:

Every year since the inaugural event in 2013, Penn State has had at least one future wrestler competing at Who’s #1. While that's impressive, it's not necessarily surprising considering the recruiting hall Cael Sanderson and co. at State College bring in every year. This year is no different with one already signed recruit and three more potential recruits that have shown interest in PSU.
