For years the Ohio Tournament of Champions as been one of the toughest youth wrestling tournaments in the country and this year is no different. Over 2,000 of the nation's best wrestlers will descend on Columbus looking to add their name to the prestigious list of placers and champions. The Ohio TOC is different from most tournaments because of the unique style of rules that it offers. Ohio TOC features one 3 minute period with 10 point tech falls, and anytime the action goes out of bounds the wrestlers are brought back to the neutral position. The clock is also turned off during overtime and the wrestlers will compete until someone scores.
