Flo Predicts Final X - Lehigh

null

On Saturday evening, the third installment of Final X takes the stage. Six world team series, as well as a handful of true third matchups, will take place at historic Grace Hall on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.

The addition of the true third matches, which finalize the national team (top three at a given weight) makes Final X - Lehigh the largest of the three installments. Of course, fans in attendance and those watching online will also get to see three men and three women earn their spots on the world teams and represent America at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, in October.

WATCH FINAL X - LEHIGH LIVE ON FLO

Where: Bethlehem, PA | When: Saturday, June 23

Like we always do at this time, the FloWrestling staff will make predictions. Love them or hate them, feel free to praise or ridicule us. Either way, you're going to have some fun.

It's pretty simple. The three men's and three women's matches will be wrestled in a best-of-three format. So the first round will go through all six matches, then the second round, and, if necessary, a third and deciding round. That's no different than the World Team Trials format for the last few decades.

Before we get to the picks, here is a bevy of Final X - Lehigh content for you to consume. Or breeze right past it. Your choice.

Neck training is an area that many wrestlers do not prioritize in their strength training. Not that I agree with that strategy (or lack thereof), but when a wrestler is on the mats and hand fighting daily their neck and upper trap muscles are getting plenty of work.

Breaking Down The Freshman Big Board

Freshmen can find the transition to high school to be drastically different depending on size and maturity. The obvious assumption is that the volume of freshmen in the 106lb weight class is going to make it the dominant weight class on the Freshman Big Board. You also would be correct to assume that the composition of the weight also leads to the weight being home to the most freshmen cracking the top 20 in the weight class rankings.
